COMMENTS

n is in the sequence iff the palindromic number 1(n).7.1(n) is prime (dot between numbers means concatenation). If n is in the sequence then n is not of the forms 3m+1, 6m, 6m+2, 7m+2, 16m+9, 16m+14, 18m+1, 18m+7, 22m+13, 22m+19, etc. (the proof is easy).

FORMULA

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

EXAMPLE

3 is in the sequence because (10^(2*3+1)+54*10^3-1)/9=1(3).7.1(3)=1117111 is prime.

2933 is in the sequence because (10^(2*2933+1)+54*10^2933-1)/9=1(2933).7.1(2933) is prime.
