Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A305668 Engel expansion whose sum has the concatenation of its terms as decimal part. Case a(1) = 10. 12

COMMENTS

a(7) is the last term because the sequence cannot be extended. At any step a(n) is choosen as the least number greater than a(n-1) that meets the requirement. Up to 8110039 the sum is 0.10 100 316 5169 183766 972915 8110039 008537... but the next term would be less than 1/(10*100*316*5169*183766*972915*8110039^2) = 0.00 000 000 0000 000000 000000 00000000 005206195... and the zeros after 8110039 cannot be removed.

EXAMPLE

1/10 = 0.10000...

1/10 + 1/(10*100) = 0.10100000...

1/10 + 1/(10*100) + 1/(10*100*316) = 0.10100316455...

The sum is 0.10 100 316 5169 ...

MAPLE

P:=proc(q, h) local a, b, c, d, n, x; x:=1; a:=1/h; b:=ilog10(h)+1;

c:=h; d:=h; print(d); for n from x to q do if trunc(evalf(a+1/(c*n), 100)*10^(b+ilog10(n)+1))=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n

then x:=n+1; b:=b+ilog10(n)+1; d:=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n;

a:=a+1/(c*n); c:=c*n; print(n); fi; od; end: P(10^9, 10);
