(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A005042 Primes formed by the initial digits of the decimal expansion of Pi.
(Formerly M3129)

%I M3129

%S 3,31,314159,31415926535897932384626433832795028841

%N Primes formed by the initial digits of the decimal expansion of Pi.

%C The next term consists of the first 16208 digits of Pi and is too large to show here (see A060421). Ed T. Prothro found this probable prime in 2001.

%C A naive probabilistic argument suggests that the sequence is infinite. [_Michael Kleber_, Jun 23 2004]
