(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A325725 a(n) is defined by the condition that the decimal expansion of the Sum_{n>=1} 1/(Sum_{k=1..n} a(k)) = 1/a(1) + 1/(a(2)-a(1)) + 1/(a(3)-a(2)+a(1)) + ... begins with the concatenation of these numbers; also a(1) = 3 and a(n) > a(n-1). 2

COMMENTS

At any step only the least value greater than a(n) is taken into consideration. In fact, instead of 53, as a(2) we could choose 76, 367, 3366, 3666, 33367, 34350, 333366, ...

EXAMPLE

1/3 = 0.3333...

1/3 + 1/(53-3) = 0.353333...

1/3 + 1/(53-3) + 1/(5254-53+3) = 0.3535254932...

The sum is 0.3 53 5254 ...

MAPLE

P:=proc(q, h) local a, b, d, n, t, z; a:=1/h; b:=length(h); d:=h; print(d); t:=h;

z:=trunc(z-frac(z)); if z=d*10^length(n)+n then b:=b+length(n);

d:=d*10^length(n)+n; t:=n-t; a:=a+1/t; print(n); fi; od; end: P(10^20, 3);
