COMMENTS

n is in the sequence iff the palindromic number 1(n).4.1(n) is prime (dot between numbers means concatenation). If n is in the sequence then n is not of the forms 3m+1, 16m+11, 16m+12, 18m+11, 18m+15, etc. (the proof is easy).

FORMULA

a(n) = (A077780(n)-1)/2.

EXAMPLE

32 is in the sequence because the palindromic number (10^(2*32+1)+27*10^32-1)/9 = 1(32).4.1(32) =
