Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A197123 a(n) is the first n-digit substring to repeat in the decimal expansion of Pi = 3.14159265358979323846264... 1

COMMENTS

a(4) is written in the sequence as a 3-digit number 582 because the repeating substring is the 4-digit number 0582.

a(18) should also have a leading zero: 013724950651727463. This value starts at digit 378,355,223 and at digit 1,982,424,643. This computation was performed by Richard Tobin. - Clive Tooth, Mar 06 2012

EXAMPLE

For n=2 the a(2)=26 solution is because if we look at all the 2-digit substrings 14,41,15,59,92,26,... of the decimal expansion of Pi=3.1415926535897932384626 we find that the first 2-digit substring to appear twice is 26.
