David Broadhurst prime proved a new 6343-digit Smoothly Undulating Palindromic Prime (SUPP for short)
1(41)_{3171} = (14*10^{6343}-41)/99
A great gift, David! Merry Christmas to you
and of course to all visitors of my website. |

Hans Rosenthal found (prime proved) a new 4885-digit
Smoothly Undulating Palindromic Prime (SUPP for short)
1(71)_{2442} = (17*10^{4885}-71)/99
It took Hans around 2009! hours to finish the proof. |

Palindromic Wing Primes (or PWP's for short) are numbers that are primes, palindromic in base 10, and consisting of one central digit surrounded by two wings having an equal amount
of identical digits different from the central one
(a.k.a. Near-Repdigit Palindromes). Everyone is invited to work on or to extend this collection. Palindromic Wing Primes (new)
Did you know these 'double beast' facts ! There are 1881 digits in 666^666 and that (1)_{666}8(1)_{666} is prime, just like 166686661 ! |

Wade promotes all numbers that do __not__ form palindromes
by reversing & adding their digits as Lychrel Numbers,
196 being the obvious first, then 879, 1997, etc. |
