COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (820*10^n + 71)/9 is a prime.

Numbers n such that digit 9 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 1 followed by digit 9 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 1139 are certified primes. For number corresponding to 10393 and larger see P. De Geest, PDP Reference Table.
