%N Largest prime factor of 10^(6*n) + 1.

%C According to the link, there are only 18 "unique primes" below 10^50. The first four terms above are each unique primes, of periods 12, 24, 36 and 48, respectively, according to Caldwell and the cross-referenced sequences. These are precisely the only unique primes (less than 10^50 at least) with this type of digit pattern: m 9's, m-1 0's and 1, in that order. (Also a(10) is a unique prime of period 120.)

%e 10^(6*4)+1 = 17 * 5882353 * 9999999900000001, so a(4) = 9999999900000001, the largest prime factor.
