COMMENTS

A number n is in the sequence iff the palindromic number 1(n).3.1(n) is prime (1(n) means n copies of 1; dot between numbers means concatenation). If n is a positive term of the sequence then n is not of the form 3m, 6m+4, 12m+10, 28m+5, 28m+8, etc. (the proof is easy).

The palindromic number 1(n).2.1(n) is never prime for n > 0 because it is (1.0(n-1).1)*(1(n+1)). - Robert Israel, Jun 11 2015

a(7) > 10^5. - Robert Price, Apr 02 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = (A077789(n)-1)/2.

EXAMPLE

19 is in the sequence because the palindromic number (10^(2*19+1)+18*10^19-1)/9 = 1(19).3.1(19) = 111111111111111111131111111111111111111 is prime.
