COMMENTS

Though this sequence rarely contains primes (see A232448), most of its members tend to contain a few very large prime factors. The name stems from 'Belphegor's Prime', a(13), which was so named by Clifford Pickover (see link). [Comment corrected by N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 14 2015]

FORMULA

a(n) = 666*10^(n+1)+100^(n+2)+1.

G.f.: (16661 - 782770*x + 767000*x^2) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 10*x)*(1 - 100*x)). [Bruno Berselli, Nov 25 2013]

PROG

(PARI) Belphegor(k)=(10^(k+3)+666)*10^(k+1)+1; nmax = 498; v = vector(nmax); for (n=0, #v-1, v[n+1]=Belphegor(n))
