A060421 Numbers n such that the first n digits of the decimal expansion of Pi form a prime. 12
1, 2, 6, 38, 16208, 47577, 78073, 613373 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The Brown link states that in 2001 Ed T. Prothro reported discovering that 16208 gives a probable prime and that Prothro verified that all values for 500 through 16207 digits of Pi are composites. - Rick L. Shepherd, Sep 10 2002

The corresponding primes are in A005042. - Alexander R. Povolotsky, Dec 17 2007
