 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS A000030(n^a(n)) = 1; A098175(n) = n^a(n). From Rémy Sigrist, Jun 25 2018: (Start) We can extend this sequence to every Gaussian integers as follows: - for any Gaussian integer z, let f(z) be the least k > 0 such that the initial decimal digit of the real part of z^k equals 1, or -1 if no such k exists, - naturally f(n) = a(n) for any n > 0, - apparently f(z) = -1 iff z = 0, - see Links section for the color plot of f.
