COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (770*10^n + 31)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 8 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 5 followed by digit 9 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 636 are certified primes.

FORMULA

a(n) = A103086(n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

855555559 is prime, hence 7 is a term.

MATHEMATICA

Flatten[Position[NestList[10#-31&, 89, 1000], _?PrimeQ]-1] (* As written, the program will generate the first 14 terms of the sequence; changing the constant from 1000 to 7000 will generate 18 terms of the sequence but it will take a long time to do so *) (* Harvey P. Dale, Jul 16 2012 *)

Select[Range[0, 100000], PrimeQ[(770*10^# + 31)/9] &] (* Robert Price, Oct 26 2015 *)

PROG
