A074481 Triangle T(p,k) read by rows, where p runs through the primes and 1 <= k <= p-1. T(p,k) = 1 if the reverse of the base-k expansion of p is a prime, otherwise 0. 1

COMMENTS

Row p has p-1 terms.

A very large version of this pyramid, with 1's replaced with white dots and 0's replaced with black dots, shows a very interesting pattern (see link). The author says: "These primes form a pattern similar to an astronomical radiant (the point in the sky from which a meteor shower appears to originate)".

EXAMPLE

Writing 11 in bases 1 through 10, we obtain

11111111111,1011,102,23,21,15,14,13,12,11. Reversing these, we obtain

11111111111,1101,201,32,12,51,41,31,21,11. Now 32 (base 4) and 31 (octal) are composite, all others are prime, so the row for 11 reads.

1,1,1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1

Triangle begins:

.1

.1 1

.1 1 1 1

.1 1 1 1 1 1

.1 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1
