EXAMPLE

In the decimal expansion of P A000796 written down as string:

3141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816

the string "13" is found at position 111, the string "111" is at position 154, the string "154" at position 3645, etc.,

hence the sequence starting with a(1)=13 is

13,111,154,3645,2699,...

In general, the sequence may end in cycle, e.g. sequence s1

starting with a(1)=1 is

s1: 1,2,7,14,2,7,14,2,7,14,2 (cycle 2,7,14,2),

Also s0, s2, s3, s4, s7, s10, s11, s14, s15, s16, s25 end with the same cycle:

s0: 0,33,25,90,248,480,105,50,32,16,41,3,1,2,7,14,2

s2: 2,7,14,2,7,14,2,

s3: 3,1,2,7,14,2,7,14,2

s4: 4,3,1, 2,7,14,2,7,14,2

s5: 5,5,5,5 (simplest cycle!)

s6: 6, 8, 12,149,2607,23047,21876,361554,403706,1674698,19210577,next term>2*10^8
