 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Same as Pisot sequences E(1, 9), L(1, 9), P(1, 9), T(1, 9). Essentially same as Pisot sequences E(9, 81), L(9, 81), P(9, 81), T(9, 81). See A008776 for definitions of Pisot sequences. Except for 1, the largest n-th power with n digits. - Amarnath Murthy, Feb 09 2002 The 2002 comment by Amarnath Murthy should say more precisely "n-th power with *at most* n digits": a(22) has only 21 digits etc., a(44) has only 42 digits etc. - Hagen von Eitzen, May 17 2009 1/1 + 1/9 + 1/81 + ... = 9/8. - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 29 2008 The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n. For n>=1, a(n) equals the number of 9-colored compositions of n such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 17 2011 To be still more precise than Murthy and von Eitzen: the subsequence of the largest n-th power with n digits is a finite sequence, bounded by 9 and 109418989131512359209. It is guaranteed that 10^n has n + 1 digits in base 10, and clearly 9^n < 10^n. With a(22), the number n - log_10 a(n) crosses the 1.0 threshold, and obviously the gulf widens further after that, meaning that for n > 21, m^n can have fewer than n digits or more than n digits but not exactly n digits. - Alonso del Arte, Dec 12 2012 For n > 0, a(n) is also the number of n-digit zeroless numbers (A052382). - Stefano Spezia, Jul 07 2022 REFERENCES N.
