COMMENTS

a(n) = A004207(n+5) for n > 52. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 14 2013

a(2) = 10 and a(590) = 10000 are the first two powers of 10 in this sequence; there are no others below a(19017393928) = 1000000000093. Conjecture: the sequence contains infinitely many powers of 10. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 29 2022
