Sequence A121267 gives the number of digits of a(n) [but see also A229181 for a variant, cf. below]. The terms a(9)-a(11) had been found by Chris Nash in Oct. 1999, and primality of the 3057-digit term a(9) has been proved by J. K. Andersen in Sept. 2002, who also found the next 5 terms a(12)-a(16) and the bound a(17) > 10^32000, cf. Rivera's web page "Problem 18". - M. F. Hasler, Aug 31 2013

There is a natural variant of the present sequence, using the same definition except for not requiring that all primes have to be distinct. That variant would have the same 3057-digit prime as next term, and therefore have the same displayed terms and not justify a second entry in OEIS. However, terms beyond a(9) would be different: instead of 73, 467 and the 14650-digit PRP, it would be followed by 7, 3, 467, 2, 2, and a 748-digit prime. Sequence A229181 yields the size of these terms. - M. F. Hasler, Sep 15 2013

The next term is the 3057-digit prime formed from digits 19 through 3075. It is 846264338327950...708303906979207. - Mark R. Diamond, Feb 22 2000

The two terms after that are 73 and 467. - Jason Earls, Apr 05 2001
