A262300 Let S(n,k) denote the number formed by concatenating the decimal numbers 1,2,3,...,k, but omitting n; a(n) is the smallest k for which S(n,k) is prime, or -1 if no term in S(n,*) is prime. 17

COMMENTS

Sep 28 2015: David Broadhurst has found a(10) = 14513, a(12) = 961, a(14) = 653, a(16) = 5109, a(17) = 493, a(18) = 757, and a(20) = 1313. All these correspond to probable primes.

It is easy to check that a(19)=29.

So the sequence begins 2, 3, 7, 9, 11, 7, 11, 1873, 19, 14513, 13, 961, ???, 653, ???, 5109, 493, 757, 29, 1313, ...

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 11 because the smallest prime in S(5,*) (A262575) is 123467891011.

a(8) = 1873 (corresponding to the 6364-digit probable prime 1234567910111213...1873) was found by David Broadhurst on Sep 27 2015.

a(9) = 19 because the smallest prime in S(19,*) is 1234567810111213141516171819.

a(10) = 14513 (corresponding to the 61457-digit probable prime 123456789111213...14513) was found by David Broadhurst on Sep 28 2015.
