COMMENTS

Some of the larger entries may only correspond to probable primes.

Some or all of the zero values are merely conjectures. - N. J. A. Sloane

a(n)=0 for n = 3m+2 (1<=m) (they are all divisible by 3) or n=11m+10 (1<=m<9) (they are all divisible by 11) and if a(n) is not 0 then n and a(n) are of opposite parity. - Robert G. Wilson v and Rick L. Shepherd, Jul 28 2005

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..78.

FORMULA

a(A016789(n)) = a(A017509(n)) = 0 for n >= 1. a(n) = 1 iff n is a term of A006093. - Rick L. Shepherd, Jul 26 2005

EXAMPLE

a(13)=4: 4 13s plus 4 = 13131313+4 = 13131317, which is prime.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := If[(n > 4 && Mod[n, 3] == 2) || (n > 20 && Mod[n, 11] == 10), k = 0, If[n == 1, k = 1, Block[{id = IntegerDigits[n]}, k = Mod[n, 2] + 1; While[ !PrimeQ[ FromDigits[ Flatten[ Table[id, {k}]]] + k], k += 2]]]; k]; Table[ f[n], {n, 100}] (* only good for n<109 *) (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 30 2005 *)

PROG

(PARI) /* for nonzero terms */ a(n) = m=1; pr=n; while(!isprime(pr+m), m++; pr=eval(concat(Str(pr), n))); m \\ Rick L. Shepherd, Jul 26 2005
