COMMENTS

See A260343 for the bases b such that A260851(b) = A_b(b) = b*r + (r - b)*(1 + b*r), is prime, where A_b is the base-b sequence, as here with b=14, and r = (b^b-1)/(b-1) is the base-b repunit of length b.

FORMULA

For n < b = 14, we have a(n) = R(14,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) = (14+1)^2 = 14^2 + 2*14 + 1 = 121_14, concatenation of (1, 2, 1).

a(15) = 123456789abcd101110dcba987654321_14 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 3, ..., 9, a, b, c, d, 10, 11, 10, d, ..., 1), where "d, 10, 11" are the base-14 representations of 13, 14, 15.

PROG

(PARI) a(n, b=14)=sum(i=1, #n=concat(vector(n*2-1, k, digits(min(k, n*2-k), b))), n[i]*b^(#n-i))

CROSSREFS

Base-14 variant of A173426 (base 10) and A173427 (base 2). See A260853 - A260866 for variants in other bases.
