 A056264 Indices of primes in sequence defined by A(0) = 99, A(n) = 10*A(n-1) - 71 for n > 0. 1

 OFFSET 1,2 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.
