Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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) = (A077779(n-1)-1)/2, for n > 1. [Corrected by M. F. Hasler, Feb 06 2020]

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.
