COMMENTS

Next term is greater than 4400th prime and the prime corresponding to the next term has more than 20000 digits. Number of digits of primes corresponding to the six known terms of the sequence are respectively 1, 2, 9, 43, 198, 4202.
We can see the prime corresponding to 383 (the 5th term of the sequence) in the page related to puzzle 8 of the website of Carlos Rivera.
a(7) > prime(28800) = 335033.  Giovanni Resta, Apr 01 2013
