Introduction

Palindromic Primes are primes that read the same

 p_right left to right (forwards) as from the right to left (backwards) p_left
Here are a few random examples : 3, 131, 71317, 134757431


This study exposes some statistics concerning palindromic primes.
For every length it gives the total number of existing palindromic primes
as well the smallest and greatest primes for those lengths.
Also in this section, now dispersed over five pages, you'll find a variety of
facts and figures about palindromic primes. Don't look for a logical order. It is
just an amalgamation of randomly gathered curios, puzzles, contributions and
more general information. I hope you like them.

Enjoy!

Latest news
[ April 2012 ]

The newest palindromic prime record is from Darren Bedwell
10290253 - 2 * 10145126 - 1
(290253 digits)
Written out, it's 145126 nines, a seven, and 145126 more nines
and is therefore a PWP or a Palindromic Wing Prime.
