dc.description.abstractWe study the distribution of palindromic numbers (with respect to a fixed base g ≥ 2) over certain congruence classes, and we derive a nontrivial upper bound for the number of prime palindromes n ≤ x as x → ∞. Our results show that almost all palindromes in a given base are composite.en_US
