%I

%S 1,2,6,38,16208,47577,78073,613373

%N Numbers n such that the first n digits of the decimal expansion of Pi form a prime.

%C 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

%C The corresponding primes are in A005042. - _Alexander R. Povolotsky_, Dec 17 2007
