Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.
Table of n, a(n) for n=1..22.
a(5)=6 because 6 is the length of 110100 or 101100, which are the 2 possible shortest common superstrings of 1,10,11,100,101.
Sequence in context: A093451 A106006 A050460 * A163380 A233569 A073138
