COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (160*10^n + 11)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 1 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 7 followed by digit 9 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 103 are certified primes.

a(13) > 10^5. - Robert Price, Feb 07 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A102943(n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

179 is prime, hence 1 is a term.

PROG

(PARI) a=19; for(n=0, 1500, if(isprime(a), print1(n, ", ")); a=10*a-11)

(PARI) for(n=0, 1500, if(isprime((160*10^n+11)/9), print1(n, ", ")))
