COMMENTS

All zeros are counted, not just the trailing zeros. So a particular n! might have more zeros than (n - 1)! (e.g., n = 10), but that's not enough for it to be in the sequence. - Alonso del Arte, Apr 30 2017

EXAMPLE

Since 0! = 1, 0! has no significant zeros, and so 0 is the first term of the sequence.

It isn't until 5! = 120 that n! gets its first significant zero, so 5 is the second term of the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

Function[s, -1 + Map[First@ Position[s, #] &, Union@ FoldList[Max, s]]]@ Array[DigitCount[#!, 10, 0] &, 430, 0] // Flatten (* Michael De Vlieger, May 12 2017 *)

PROG

(PARI) lista(n) = my(l = List([0]), m=0, p=1, d); for(i=2, n, p*=i; d = digits(p); s = sum(i=1, #d, d[i]==0); if(s > m, listput(l, i); m=s)); l \\ David A. Corneth, May 19 2017
