Note that leading zeros are dropped. Example: When the primes 691, 701, 709, and 719 get concatenated and digitized, they become {..., 6, 9, 1, 7, 0, 1, 7, 0, 9, 7, 1, 9, ...}. These will end up in A074721 as: a(98)=691, a(99)=7, a(100)=17, a(101)=97, a(102)=19, ..., . Terms a(100) & a(101) have associated with them unstated leading zeros. - Hans Havermann, Jun 26 2009

Large terms in the links are probable primes only. For example, a(1290) has 24744 digits and a(4050), 32676 digits. If of course any probable primes were not actual primes, the indexing of subsequent terms would be altered. - Hans Havermann, Dec 28 2010

What is the next term after {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19}, if any, giving a(k)=A000040(k)?
