Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A351996 A chain reaction sequence: a digit d1 from a(n) is expelled towards a(n+1) where it hits a digit d2 [from a(n+1)] and replaces it; d2 in turn is expelled towards a(n+2), hits a digit d3 there and replaces it; d3 in turn is expelled towards a(n+3), hits a digit there, and replaces it; d4 is expelled... etc. At the end of the chain reaction, only prime numbers will be left. This is the lexicographically earliest sequence of distinct positive integers with this property. 4

EXAMPLE

1 is expelled from a(1) = 1 and hits the 0 of a(2) = 10, turning this integer into 11, a prime;

0 is expelled from a(2) = 10 and hits the 0 of a(3) = 101, leaving this prime unchanged;

0 is expelled from a(3) = 101 and hits the 0 of a(4) = 103, leaving this prime unchanged;

0 is expelled from a(4) = 103 and hits the 0 of a(5) = 107, leaving this prime unchanged;

0 is expelled from a(5) = 107 and hits the 0 of a(6) = 109, leaving this prime unchanged;

0 is expelled from a(6) = 109 and hits the middle 1 of a(7) = 111, turning this integer into 101, a prime;

1 is expelled from a(7) = 111 and hits one 1 of a(8) = 11, leaving this prime unchanged;

1 is expelled from a(8) = 11 and hits the 2 of a(9) = 12, turning this integer into 11, a prime;

2 is expelled from a(9) = 12 and hits the 2 of a(10) = 2, leaving this prime unchanged; etc.
