A014778 Numbers n equal to the number of 1's in the decimal digits of all numbers <= n. 30

The full list of 84 terms is given in the b-file.

It can be proved that this sequence is finite. (The main idea of the proof is that the number of 1's used in positive integers <= n is greater than or equal to A(n) = (1/10) number of digits in positive integers from 1 to n = (1/10) Sum_{i=1,...n} (1+floor(log_10 i)). By considering the area below a logarithmic function and the corresponding integral, it can be shown that A(n)/n goes to infinity.) - Joseph L. Pe, Nov 05 2002

a(5)=199983 because the number of 1's in the decimal digits of the numbers from 0 to 199983 is 199983 and this is the 5th such number.

41 further terms from Ryan Propper, Dec 07 2004, who observed that there are no more terms <= 10^9

The final (84th) term 1111111110 was sent by Lambrecht Kok (L.P.Kok(AT)rug.nl), Jan 13 2005. He says: "H. van Haeringen and I showed that this list of 84 terms is complete on Dec 15 2004".

Independently shown to be complete by Ryan Propper and Vaughan Pratt, Jan 08 2005
