COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (280*10^n + 17)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 3 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 1 followed by digit 3 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 599 are certified primes.

FORMULA

a(n) = A082704(n) - 2.

EXAMPLE

313 is prime, hence 1 is a term.

MATHEMATICA

Flatten[Position[NestList[10#-17&, 33, 600], _?PrimeQ]-1] (* This generates the first 8 terms of the sequence. Changing the last constant from 600 to 9825 will generate all 9 terms of the sequence but it will take a long time to do so. - Harvey P. Dale, May 16 2012 *)
