COMMENTS

Let f(n) = n + (sum of digits of n) = A062028(n).
Let g(m) = number of n such that f(n) = m (i.e. the number of inverses of m), A230093(m).
Numbers m with g(m) = 0 are called the Self or Colombian numbers, A003052.
Numbers m with g(m) = 1 give A225793.
Numbers m with g(m) = 2 give A230094.
The present sequence gives numbers m such that A230093(m) = 3.
The smallest term, a(1) = 10^13 + 1, was found by Narasinga Rao, who reports that Kaprekar verified that it is the smallest term. No details of Kaprekar's proof were given.
a(2) onwards were computed by Donovan Johnson, Oct 12 2013, and on Oct 20 2013 he completed a search of all numbers below 10^13 and verified that 10^13 + 1 is indeed the smallest term.
See A006064 for much more about this question.

EXAMPLE

There are exactly three numbers, 9999999999892, 9999999999901 and 10000000000000, whose image under n>f(n) is 10000000000001, so 10^13+1 is a member of the sequence.
