Numbers n such that (830*10^n + 61)/9 is prime. - Klaus Brockhaus and Walter Oberschelp (oberschelp(AT)informatik.rwth-aachen.de), Nov 27 2004

Numbers n such that digit 9 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 2 followed by digit 9 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 3607 are certified primes. For number corresponding to 37783 see P. De Geest, PDP Reference Table.
