%N Primes with prime "look and say" descriptions.

%C The "look and say" descriptions of some of these primes are themselves also terms of this sequence (for example, the one for 373). - _Alonso del Arte_, Mar 01 2012

%e 193 is prime and its "look and say" description A045918(193) = 111913, is also prime, so 193 belongs to the sequence.

%t LookAndSayA[ n_] := FromDigits@Flatten@((Through[ {Length, First}[ # ] ] &) /@ Split@IntegerDigits@n); Select[Prime@Range[210], PrimeQ@LookAndSayA@# &] (* _Ray Chandler_, Jan 12 2007 *)

%t (* _Emmanuel Vantieghem_, Jan 26 2012, reports that the above Mma program is incorrect, because the LookAndSayA function can give wrong answers. Here is a better function (b and c to be substituted by suitable numbers): *)

%t LookAndSayA[n_] := FromDigits@Flatten@(IntegerDigits/@Flatten@

%t ((Through[{Length, First}[#]]&)/@Split@IntegerDigits@n)); W=Select[Prime@Range[b, c], PrimeQ@LookAndSayA@#&]

%t (* _Robert G. Wilson v_ then commented (Jan 27 2012) that the following version is cleaner: *)

%t LookAndSayA[n_] := FromDigits@ Flatten@ IntegerDigits@ Flatten[

%t Through[{Length, First}[#]] & /@ Split@ IntegerDigits@ n]
