COMMENTS

If prime(n) has k digits then a(k) is the smallest prime(m) where 10^k * prime(m) + prime(n) is a prime.

In base 10, no prime can be prefixed to 2 or 5 to make another prime.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 2 because prime(2) = 3, and the concatenation of 2 and 3 gives the prime 23.

a(3) = 0 because prime(3) = 5 and there is no prime to concatenate with to give another prime.

a(4) = 3 because prime(5) = 7 but the concatenation with 2 gives 27 = 3^3, so it has to be 3 in order to give 37, which is prime.
