COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (230*10^n + 31)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 2 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 5 followed by digit 9 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 732 are certified primes.

a(9) > 10^5. - Robert Price, Feb 06 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A102956(n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

29 is prime, hence 0 is a term.

PROG

(PARI) a=29; for(n=0, 1500, if(isprime(a), print1(n, ", ")); a=10*a-31)

(PARI) for(n=0, 1500, if(isprime((230*10^n+31)/9), print1(n, ", ")))
