Palindromic primes embedded between two ones

by Zakir Seidov

Take 11 (the only 2-d palprime).

6. Now Q is shifted to 11-d palprimes.

Digits in PP | PP_pure | 1_PP_1 | 3_PP_3 | 7_PP_7 | 9_PP_9 |

Everyone with some spare time is invited to complete the above tabel.

Assignment _1_

Will the following ever happen again ?

Is the number **10501** a unique palindromic prime ?

When added together with its __preceding__ prime and its __following__ prime, the result is again a palindromic prime.

And as a pure coincidence we notice that :

that have a palindromic term in the sum somewhere.

[ *May 15, 2003* ]

Giovanni Resta (email) found eight more solutions to this assignment. Well done!

It pleases me a lot that this old puzzle (five years since its first publication!) still grabs

someone's attention. Giovanni scanned exhaustively all possible solutions

between 10501 and 324456535654423. The list now goes as follows :

[ *June 10, 2003* ]

Jens Kruse Andersen (email) found many big solutions and could find thousands

of "small" solutions (with 19-39 digits) in a day.

For all the details of his clever approach I refer to
Carlos Rivera's webpage at http://www.primepuzzles.net/puzzles/puzz_007.htm.

Here is just one solution (303 digits) from his email that

I prefer above the others because of its palindromic length !

Jens's current record is a solution with 527 digits. Amazing!p= 10^{302}+ 10*(7*10^{301}-70)/99 + 10^{140}*22001012200100221010022 + 1

Let w be "0" followed by 69 concatenations of "70".

Thenpis the concatenation 1w92708082907170928080729w1Solution equation: ( p-138) + (p) + (p+158) = (3p+20)These 4 primes were proved with Marcel Martin's Primo.

Assignment _2_

Can you find larger palindromic primes than

9918199 |
3306049 + 3306059 + 3306091 |

that is the sum of three or __more__ consecutive primes ?

They were all sent to me by email starting from [ *August 26 & September 28, 1998* ].

Note that some palindromic primes have very interesting patterns !

**11155555111** - a generalized __plateau__ prime - is expressible as 3 and 7 consecutive primes (see table (!)).

See also Carlos Rivera's ** Puzzle nr. 23** : Pal-primes adding consecutive primes.

[ *June 10, 2003 *]

Jens Kruse Andersen (email) found three titanic solutions (1001 digits).

For the strategy of his clever approach I refer to
Carlos Rivera's webpage at http://www.primepuzzles.net/puzzles/puzz_023.htm.

The solutions to assignment 1 are also valid here, but a search designed for

this problem can find bigger solutions.

Here is the second solution of his triplet :

Impressive, to say the least, Jens !p= 10^{1000}+ 1308107018031*10^{494}+ 1

Solution equation: ( x–3772) + (x–2094) + (x+5868), wherex= (p–2)/3The palprimes were proved with PrimeForm/GW and all the other primes with Marcel Martin's Primo.

Assignment _3_

Try extending one or more of the following five lists

Neil Sloane's "Integer Sequences" Encyclopedia can be consulted online :reflectable primes. under A007616.Reflectable emirps. under A007628.reversal is prime. under A007500.reversal is a different prime). under A006567.P. De Geest] entries to the table.Click here to view some entries to the table about palindromes. |

The site The largest known primes keeps monthly updates also about palindromic primes.

Note that the length of this giant is palindromic too (no coincidence!).

The largest one in the list [ dating from *April 28, 1999* ] is **10^30802 + 1110111*10^15398 + 1** and is __30803__ digits long !

Harvey Dubner published various articles
about palindromic primes in the Journal of Recreational Mathematics.

Most of Harvey's record palindromic primes are on display.

The Top Ten by Rudolph Ondrejka

In Keith Devlin book All the Math that's Fit to Print chapter 92 we read about the largest known palindromic prime number (back in 1987 !).

It starts and ends with a 1, has a single 5 in the middle, and zeros everywhere else for a total of 2.977 digits.

Here is an excerpt from Martin Gardner's book

*"Puzzles from other Worlds"* page 107 :

*"The smallest palindrome prime containing all the ten digits is 1023456987896543201,
which was proved by Harry L. Nelson in 1980.
The largest known palindromic prime, discovered by Hugh C. Williams in 1977,
consists of the digit 1 repeated 317 times. It is called a repunit prime. The only
other known repunit primes are 11, and the primes formed by 19 and 23 units.
The number formed with 1,031 units is probably the next larger repunit prime,
but this has not yet been proved."*

I'd like to state here that since then R1031 is found to be 100% prime.

I quote from Eric Weisstein's Repunit page

*"The only base-10 repunit Primes Rn for are n=2, 19, 23, 317, and 1031
(Sloane's A004023; Madachy 1979, Williams and Dubner 1986, Ball and Coxeter 1987, Granlund).
T. Granlund completed a search up to 45,000 in 1998 using two months of CPU time on a parallel computer."*
