Table of n, a(n) for n=1..38.

FORMULA

A260871(n) = A[a(n)](A261171(n)), where A[b](k) = Sum_{i=1..#d} d[i]*b^(#d-i), d = concatenation of (1, 2, ..., k, k-1, ..., 1) all written in base b.

EXAMPLE

A260871(1) = A[2](2), therefore a(1) = 2.

A260871(2) = A[3](3), therefore a(2) = 3.

A260871(3) = A[2](4), therefore a(3) = 2.

PROG

(PARI) A261172_list(LIM=1e499)={my(A=List(), p, d); for(b=2, 9e9, for(n=b, 9e9, if(LIM<p=sum(i=1, #d=concat(vector(n*2-1, k, digits(min(k, n*2-k), b))), d[i]*b^(#d-i)), break(2-(n>b))); ispseudoprime(p)&&listput(A, [log(p), n]))); apply(t->t[2], vecsort(A))}
