 A068987 a(n) is the first position in the digit sequence 3,1,4,1,5,9,.... of Pi where the pattern "1,2,...,n" occurs (where position of the initial 3 is 1). 14

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS 1. We may never know if a(n) is defined for all n. 2. We split up the digits of any number > 9 in the pattern, e.g., if n = 11, we search for the pattern "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,1,0,1,1". 3. The pattern "1,2,3,4,5,6" does not occur before the 100,000th term in the digit sequence of Pi. Two more terms a(6) and a(7) were found via the referenced Pi-Search link [Andersen], through which 100 million digits of Pi are currently available. - Rick L. Shepherd, Oct 10 2002 200 million digits now available at Pi-Search page. - Rick L. Shepherd, Aug 06 2006 This sequence uses position = 1 for the initial digit 3 of Pi, while A121280(n) = a(n)-1 starts counting at 0, as does the "Pi search page" and sequences A035117, A050279 - A050287, A048940, A096755 - A096763. - M.
