COMMENTS

The lexicographically earliest sequence such that a(1),a(2),a(3),... is the (increasing) list of the positions of digits "8" in the string obtained by concatenating all these terms, written in base 10.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..50.

EXAMPLE

We cannot have a(1)=1 (since then there's no "8" in the first place), but a(1)=2 is possible.

This implies that a(2) must start with a digit "8", so a(2)=8 is the smallest possible choice.

This allows us to go on with a(3)=9, a(4)=10, a(5)=11, but then must be follow 4 digits "8" (the 8th through 11th digit of the sequence), so a(6)=88 and a(7)=880 are the smallest possible choices.

Then the reasoning continues in analogy with A167452-A167457.

PROG

(PARI) concat([ [2, 8, 9, 10, 11, 88, 880], vector((88-11-1)\3, i, 900-(i<=8)+i+(i>=18)), [8000], select(x->x%10-8 & x\10%10-8, vector((880-88)\4, i, 9000-1+i)) ])
