This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

%N Concatenation of the palindromic numbers (A002113) in increasing order up to the n-th term and then in decreasing order.

%C By definition, all terms are palindromes. Inspired by A261493.

%C There are no primes in this sequence up to a(1100).

%C The least prime factors of a(n), n>=1, are: 1, 11, 3, 11, 41, 3, 239, 11, 3, 11, 11, 3, 11, 11, 3, 11, 11, 3, 71, 21557, 19, 17, 31, 181, 17, 353, 19, 31, 19, 29, 17, 29, 11616377, 214141, 19, 5471, 17, 13883, 3, 7, ..., . See A261411.

%C The first (probable) prime in this sequence was found by _David Broadhurst_ on Aug 25 2015: this is a(2007), a 21233-digit probable prime with central term 1008001. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Aug 24 2015

%e a(4) is the concatenation of 1, 2, 3 and 4, and then 3, 2 and 1 which results in 1234321.
