FORMULA
x = r^4 where r=...1441224165530407839804103263499879186432 (A120817). x = 10-adic limit_{n->oo} 6^(5^n). - Paul D. Hanna, Jul 06 2006
For n >= 2, the final n+1 digits of either 2^(10^n), 4^(10^n) or 6^(10^n), when read from right to left, give the first n+1 entries in the sequence. - Peter Bala, Nov 05 2022
EXAMPLE
x equals the limit of the (n+1) trailing digits of 6^(5^n):
6^(5^0)=(6), 6^(5^1)=77(76), 6^(5^2)=28430288029929701(376), ...
x = ...9442576576769103890995893380022607743740081787109376.
From Peter Bala, Nov 05 2022: (Start)
Trailing digits of 2^(10^n), 4^(10^n) and 6^(10^n) for n = 5:
2^(10^5) = ...9883(109376);
4^(10^5) = ...7979(109376);
6^(10^5) = ...4155(109376). (End)
MAPLE
a := proc (n) option remember; if n = 1 then 2 else irem(a(n-1)^10, 10^n) end if; end proc:
# display the digits of a(100) from right to left

MATHEMATICA
b = {6}; g[n_] := Block[{k = 0, c}, While[c = FromDigits[Prepend[b, k]]; Mod[c^2, 10^n] != c, k++ ]; b = Prepend[b, k]]; Do[ g[n], {n, 2, 105}]; Reverse[b]
