 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Differs from A161355 in that the present sequence allows an "overlap" of the digits, while A161355 requires a(n)^2 to have at least 2n digits. - M. F. Hasler, Mar 03 2014 According to a linear regression, a(13) is in the range (1.2 +/- 1.0)*10^12 with a probability of 68.3% (one-sigma). - Julien Kluge, Mar 04 2016 LINKS EXAMPLE a(3)=264 since 264^2 = 69696 is the smallest square that starts and ends with the same 3 digits.
