COMMENTS

Original name was "Palindromic wing primes (a.k.a. near-repdigit palindromes) of the form 7*(10^a(n)-1)/9-2*10^[ a(n)/2 ]."

Prime versus probable prime status and proofs are given in the author's table.

a(16) > 2*10^5. - Robert Price, Jun 23 2017

1 could be considered part of this sequence since the formula evaluates to 5 which is a degenerate form of the near-repdigit palindrome 777...77577...777 that has zero occurrences of the digit 7. - Robert Price, Jun 23 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*A183180(n) + 1.

EXAMPLE

15 is in the sequence because 7*(10^15 - 1)/9 - 2*10^7 = 777777757777777 is prime.
