COMMENTS

I call these primes (multiplicative) "pointer primes", in the sense that such primes p "point" to the next prime after p when the product of the digits of p is added to p. 23 is the only pointer prime < 10^7 which does not contain the digit "1". Are there other pointer primes not containing the digit "1"?

See Prime Puzzle 251 link for several arguments that 23 is the only pointer prime not containing digit "1".

EXAMPLE

23 + product of digits of 23 = 29, which is the next prime after 23. Hence 23 belongs to the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

r = {}; Do[p = Prime[i]; q = Prime[i + 1]; If[p + Apply[Times, IntegerDigits[p]] == q, r = Append[r, p]], {i, 1, 10^6}]; r
