 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Primes of the form (1+r(b)*b)*(r(b)-b+1)-1 with r(b)=(b^b-1)/(b-1). Sequences A173427, A260853 - A260859, A173426, A260861 - A260866, A260860 list the numbers whose base b expansion is the concatenation of the base b expansions of (1, 2, ..., n, n-1, ..., 1). For n < b these are the squares of the repdigits of length n in base b, so the first candidate is the b-th term. These are the numbers listed in A260851. For the bases listed in A260343, this candidate is indeed prime: these are the primes listed here. a(8) = A260851(40) has already 127 digits and is therefore too large to be displayed here. LINKS D.
