 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Numbers n such that (450*10^n - 81)/9 is prime. Numbers n such that digit 4 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 9 followed by digit 1 is prime. Numbers corresponding to terms <= 438 are certified primes. a(22) > 2*10^5. - Robert Price, May 30 2015 REFERENCES Klaus Brockhaus and Walter Oberschelp, Zahlenfolgen mit homogenem Ziffernkern, MNU 59/8 (2006), pp. 462-467.
