 A329181 a(n) = n if n is 1 or prime; otherwise (1) let m = (concatenation of the two divisors in the middle of rows of A027750(n)), (2) if m is prime then a(n) = m, otherwise return to (1) with n=m. 1

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS A term is a prime (or 1 for the first one) obtained by concatenating its two factors that are closest to its square root. Once they are concatenated (as strings), the process is iterated until concatenation gives a prime. Only composite numbers are processed. At each iteration, we choose a couple (d, d') of divisors this way: n = d * d' and d = max({d >= 1 such that d|n and d<=sqrt(n)}), we replace n with the string concatenation of d and d' digits. The process ends with d = 1 (n is a prime). This sequence is the balanced version of A316941. Apparently it is only a conjecture that the process in the definition will alwats terminate. - N. J. A.
