COMMENTS

Take all the factors generated during the search for a home prime, put them together in the order found (just like when looking for the home prime itself) and test for primality. If it is a prime you have a DPHP.

Further terms are 74, 75, 95.

The number of iterations must be more than 1, preventing numbers such as 12 (12->2*2*3->223) from being a DPHP. - Dana Jacobsen, May 06 2015

An additional restriction is that a number is not a DPHP if it appears as the result as a product in any home prime search.  So 25 is not a DPHP because a(10) => 2*5->25 => 5*11->511 => 7*73->773, and 25 appears in the process. - Dana Jacobsen, May 23 2015

49 and 77 do not currently have known home prime sequences, hence it is unknown if they are in the DPHP sequence. - Dana Jacobsen, May 06 2015

EXAMPLE

Starting number 16 takes 4 iterations to get to the home prime of 31636373:

16 -> 2 * 2 * 2 * 2;

2222 -> 2 * 11 * 101;

211101 -> 3 * 11 * 6397;

3116397 -> 3 * 163 * 6373;

31636373 -> prime.

Now take all the factors found, in order: 2222211101311639731636373, a prime.

So 16 leads to a DPHP.
