COMMENTS

The total probability of finding a match of length n digits is exactly 0.9.  That is, we expect 0.9 matches with 1 digit, 0.9 matches with 2 digits, etc.  Increasing the number of digits by a factor of 10 means that we expect to find 0.9 new matches.  Increasing the search from 10^11 to 10^12 (which includes 10 times as much work) would thus only expect to find 0.9 new matches. - Alan Eliasen, May 01 2013

a(9) is greater than 10^12. - Alan Eliasen, Jun 17 2013

a(2) is not the first occurrence of 242424 in Pi (which is at position 242422) but the second. - Hans Havermann, Jul 26 2014

EXAMPLE

5 is a term because 5 is the 5th digit of Pi (3.1415...).

MATHEMATICA

StringsinPi[m_] := Module[{cc = 10^m + m, sol, aa}, sol = Partition[RealDigits[Pi, 10, cc] // First, m, 1]; Do[aa = FromDigits[sol[[i]]]; If[aa==i, Print[{i, aa}]], {i, Length[sol]}]; ] For example, StringsinPi[6] returns all 6-digit members of the sequence. - Colin Rose, Mar 15 2006
