(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A165302 a(n) is the smallest number not already in the sequence, such that the concatenation of all a(n) displays the periodic digit string 1, 2, 3, 4 (and repeat). 4
1, 2, 3, 4, 12, 34, 123, 41, 23, 412, 341, 234, 1234, 12341, 2341, 23412, 3412, 34123, 4123, 41234, 123412, 341234, 1234123, 412341, 234123, 4123412, 3412341, 2341234, 12341234, 123412341, 23412341, 234123412, 34123412, 341234123, 41234123, 412341234 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..36.

EXAMPLE

Starting from 1, 2, 3, 4, the next number must be 12 because we need to continue with a 1. But 1 is already in the sequence so we need to attach a 2 -> 12. And so on.
