COMMENTS

n is in the sequence iff the palindromic number 1(n).8.1(n) is prime (dot between numbers means concatenation). Let f(n)=(10^(2n+1)+63*10^n-1)/9 then for all nonnegative integers m we have: I. 3 divides f(3m+2) II. 19 divides f(18m+13) III. 29 divides f(28*m+16) & 29 divides f(28*m+25) IV. 31 divides f(30*m+2) & 31 divides f(30*m+17) V. 41 divides f(5m+3), etc. So if n is in the sequence then n is not of the forms 3m+2, 18m+13, 28m+16 28m+25, 30m+2, 30m+17, 5m+3, etc.

FORMULA

a(n) = (A077791(n)-1)/2.

EXAMPLE

7 is in the sequence because (10^15+63*10^7-1)/9=1(7).8.1(7)=111111181111111 is prime.

666 is in the sequence because (10^(2*666+1)+63*10^666-1)/9=1(666).8.1(666) is prime.
