Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

COMMENTS

The primes themselves (A069151) are sometimes called Smarandache-Wellin primes.

No others with n <= 10400. - Eric W. Weisstein, Mar 01 2004
