COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (220*10^n + 23)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 2 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 4 followed by digit 7 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 179 are certified primes.

With alternating signs, expansion of cosh(atan(x)).

a(15) > 10^5. - Robert Price, Mar 15 2015.
