Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A120442 P-positions of John H. Conway's "Digit Deletions" game from "On Numbers and Games". Each number is the smallest positive integer that cannot be reduced to an earlier number in the sequence, by performing one of the following two operations: (1) changing one digit to a smaller digit (but not changing the leading digit to 0), or (2) deleting a 0 and all subsequent digits. 0
1, 11, 20, 32, 43, 54, 65, 76, 87, 98, 111, 120, 132, 143, 154, 165, 176, 187, 198, 201, 210, 222, 233, 244, 255, 266, 277, 288, 299, 300, 312, 321, 334, 345, 353, 367, 378, 386, 402, 413, 424, 431, 440, 456, 468, 475, 489, 497, 503, 514 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The sequence is base-dependent, but notice that each number in a given base's sequence has a correspondent in all higher bases (the number with the same digit representation). The smallest n-digit number in the sequence is always a repunit.

EXAMPLE

201 is in the sequence because every number it may be reduced to (101, 2, 200) is not in the sequence: 101 and 2 both reduce to 1 and 200 reduces to 20.
