A082946  	 	 Palindromes satisfying A082945.

well, if (rev n) is the reversal of the last #n digits of a(i), then
any (odd digit) palindrome with middle digit 1 is in A082945 and
A082946.
The nontrivial elements would rather be the non-palindromic terms of A082945.
OTOH, for more than 3 digits, the sequence would soon be "flooded" by
numbers satisfying the definition using only very few digits from the
start.
Specifically, if
amb  is in the sequence, with a = m * b
(m=middle digit, b = "rev a") then any
axmyb is in the sequence with x,y having the same number of digits.

So one could impose that n must be all that precedes the middle digit
and "rev n" = [reversal of]  all that follows the middle digit
(w/ or w/o allowing leading zeroes)

Remark: according to the current "definition", the number 1 should
also be in A082945 and A082946.

PS: IMHO these sequences are not extremely interesting...
