(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A068167 Define an increasing sequence as follows. Given the first term, called the seed (which need not share the property of the remaining terms), subsequent terms are obtained by inserting at least one digit in the previous term so as to obtain the smallest number with the specified property. This is the prime sequence with the seed a(1) = 2. 11
2, 23, 223, 1223, 10223, 102023, 1020023, 10200263, 102002603, 1020026303, 10200226303, 102002263031, 1020002263031, 10200022363031, 102000223263031, 1020000223263031, 10200002232630131, 102000022326301313, 1020000222326301313, 10200002223236301313 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

EXAMPLE

The primes that can be obtained by inserting/placing a digit in a(2) = 23 are 223, 233, 239, 263, 283, 293, etc. a(3) = 223 is the smallest.

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) option remember; local s, w, m;

      if n=1 then 2

    else w:=a(n-1); s:=""||w; m:=length(s);

         min(select(x->length(x)=m+1 and isprime(x),

         {seq(seq(parse(cat(seq(s[h], h=1..i), j,

         seq(s[h], h=i+1..m))), j=0..9), i=0..m)})[])

      fi

    end:
