N = 34*R(36400)-42000040044444004000024*10^2264*R(36400)/R(4550)-1 is a palindromic prime all of whose 36401 decimal digits are prime. The previous record for a prime-digit palindromic prime was set in at 30931 digits. To prove that N is prime, I proceeded as follows. 1) Primo was used to prove that p4546 = (34*(10^4550-1)/9-42000040044444004000024*10^2264)/38834 is prime. 2) 10^36400-1 is divisible by a pair of titanic primes, namely p1914 = Phi(5200,10)/5990401 and p1440 = gcd(Phi(9100,10),\ 10^(4*455)+5*10^(3*455)+7*10^(2*455)+5*10^455+1+\ 10^228*(10^(3*455)+2*10^(2*455)+2*10^455+1)) which were also proven by Primo. 3) Combining these 3 prime factors of N+1 with 114 smaller proven primes, to form an OpenPfgw helper file, one obtains > [N+1, Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge] > Reading factors from helper file kp36400.fac > Running N+1 test using discriminant 5, base 5+sqrt(5) > Calling Brillhart-Lehmer-Selfridge with factored part 30.03% > 34*R(36400)-42000040044444004000024*10^2264*R(36400)/R(4550)-1 > is Lucas PRP! (6681.1182s+0.2175s) 4) With those BLS tests validating a factorization percentage in excess of 30%, the proof was completed by 11 square tests and 2 cubic tests, using a Konyagin-Pomerance method. The proof of the primality of p4546 may be found in and the proof of the primality of N is completed by David Broadhurst
