COMMENTS

The first prime in this sequence is a(13) = A260871(9). Since a(11) is not prime, the base 11 is not listed in A260343.

FORMULA

For n < b = 11, we have a(n) = R(b,n)^2, where R(b,n) = (b^n-1)/(b-1) are the base-b repunits.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 0 is the result of the empty sum corresponding to 0 digits.

a(2) = (11+1)^2 = 11^2 + 2*11 + 1 = 121_11, concatenation of (1, 2, 1).

a(12) = 123456789a101110a987654321_11 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 3, ..., 9, a, 10, 11, 10, a, 9, ..., 1), where "a, 10, 11" are the base-11 representations of 10, 11, 12.

PROG

(PARI) a(n, b=11)=sum(i=1, #n=concat(vector(n*2-1, k, digits(min(k, n*2-k), b))), n[i]*b^(#n-i))

CROSSREFS

Base-11 variant of A173426 (base 10) and A173427 (base 2). See A260853 - A260866 for variants in other bases.
