 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS See A073640 for the sequence involving concatenation of 2 successive terms, A080153 for 3 successive terms. Primeness is established using Maple's isprime() function, so later terms should be regarded as "probable". LINKS T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..201 FORMULA For any n>1, a(n) is prime and a(n) > a(n-1). a(n) is the smallest prime for which a(1)//a(2)//...//a(n) is prime. // denotes concatenation. EXAMPLE E.g. a(5)=47 since this is the smallest prime>a(4) which, when concatenated with the concatenation of a(1) to a(4) (=231131), also yields a prime, in this case 23113147. MAPLE with(numtheory): pout := [2]: nout := [1]: for n from 2 to 5000 do: p := ithprime(n): d := parse(cat(seq(pout[i], i=1..nops(pout)), p)): if (isprime(d)) then pout := [op(pout), p]: nout := [op(nout), n]: fi: od: pout; MATHEMATICA f[s_List] := Block[{p=NextPrime@s[[-1]], pp=FromDigits@Flatten[IntegerDigits/@s]}, While[!PrimeQ[pp*10^Floor[Log[10, p]+1]+p], p=NextPrime@p]; Append[s, p]]; Nest[f, {2}, 40] CROSSREFS Cf.
