Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Next term is greater than 4400th prime and the prime corresponding to the next term has more than 20000 digits. Number of digits of primes corresponding to the six known terms of the sequence are respectively 1, 2, 9, 43, 198, 4202.

We can see the prime corresponding to 383 (the 5th term of the sequence) in the page related to puzzle 8 of the website of Carlos Rivera.

a(7) > prime(28800) = 335033. - Giovanni Resta, Apr 01 2013

EXAMPLE

17 is in the sequence because 17.13.11.7.5.3 is prime (dot between numbers means concatenation).

MATHEMATICA

Do[If[PrimeQ[(v={}; Do[v=Join[v, IntegerDigits[Prime[n-j+1]]], {j, n-1}]; FromDigits[v])], Print[Prime[n]]], {n, 2, 4413}]

Prime[#]&/@Select[Range[100], PrimeQ[FromDigits[Flatten[IntegerDigits/@ Prime[Range[#, 2, -1]]]]]&] (* To generate a(6) increase the Range by 1000, but the program will run a long time. *) (* Harvey P. Dale, Nov 27 2015 *)
