COMMENTS

From David W. Wilson, Feb 17 2012 : (Start)
The decimal expansion of 1/a(n) includes every possible block of n digits. Conjecturally, a(n) is the smallest value with this property.
If Artin's conjecture is true, there are an infinite number of primes with primitive root 10, which implies that a(n) exists for all n. Artin's conjecture remains open. (End)
