 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A089922 Largest odd number in the reverse concatenation of the first n consecutive odd numbers when that concatenation is prime. 2
 3, 73, 123, 817, 5433 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 3,1 COMMENTS These numbers are rare. For the case of the reverse concatenation of the consecutive numbers 1,2,3,... I have only found 828180...54321. Certainly, we can reduce the trials by noting that 2/3 of the numbers formed this way are multiples of 3 for the consecutive numbers and 1/3 of the odd consecutive numbers is a multiple of 3 but I do not think that will help much using PARI. The number corresponding to 54335431...7531 has 10313 digits. The next term, if it exists is greater than 13000. [From Dmitry Kamenetsky, Feb 21 2009] LINKS EXAMPLE 31 is the reverse concatenation of the consecutive odd numbers 1 and 3. 31 is prime. 817815813...531 is the reverse concatenation of the odd numbers 1 to 817. 817815813...531 is a probable prime. PROG (PARI) revprime2(n) = { y=1; forstep(x=3, n, 2, y=concat(Str(x), Str(y)); z=eval(y); if(ispseudoprime(z), print(x", "z)) ) } CROSSREFS Cf. original concatenation in A038395.
