 A100552 Single-digit primes, followed recursively by 2k-digit primes obtained by concatenation of pairs of distinct k-digit primes of the sequence. 0
 2, 3, 5, 7, 23, 37, 53, 73, 5323 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The sequence is finite because there is only one 4-digit prime from which no further 8-digit primes can be obtained as there are no 4-digit partners left. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..9. EXAMPLE Start from the 4 single-digit primes 2,3,5,7. Construct all 2-digit primes with prime digits (to get the first 8 elements of A019546). Add the 4-digit primes obtained by concatenation of the previous 2-digit primes.
