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

EXAMPLE

a(3)=264 since 264^2 = 69696 is the smallest square that starts and ends with the same 3 digits.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Block[{digits = {}},

  For[i = Ceiling[Sqrt[10^n]], True, i++,

   If[i^2 >= 10^n, digits = IntegerDigits[i^2];

    If[Take[digits, n] == Take[digits, -n], Return[i]]]]];
