 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS 142857 and 999999 = 7*142857 are first and last Kaprekar numbers with six digits. Note a(n) + a(n+3) = 9. (142857^2 = 20408122449; 20408 + 122449 = 142857.) a(n)^2 = 1, 16, 4, 64, 25, 49, ... - Paul Curtz, Aug 24 2009 The constant 19 + 1/7 = 19.142857... is the Kirchhoff index of the Möbius ladder graph on v=8 vertices. The laplacian matrix has the eigenvalues 4 (one time), 4-sqrt(2) (2 times), 4+sqrt(2) (2 times), 2 (2 times) and 0 (one time). Then the Kirchhoff index is v times the sum over the inverse, nonzero eigenvalues. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 13 2011 Decimal expansion of -99*(zeta(-5) + zeta(-9)) - 1. - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Sep 15 2013 Also, decimal expansion of Sum_{i>0} 1/8^i. - Bruno Berselli, Jan 03 2014 The points whose coordinates are overlapping pairs of digits of this sequence, (1, 4), (4, 2), (2, 8), (8, 5), (5, 7) and (7, 1), all lie on one ellipse, with equation 19*x^2 + 36*x*y + 41*y^2 - 333*x - 531*y = -1638. Overlapping pairs of pairs of digits, (14, 28), (42, 85), (28, 57), (85, 71), (57, 14), (71, 42), also yield 6 points on one ellipse, with equation -165104*x^2 + 160804*x*y + 8385498*x - 41651*y^2 - 3836349*y = 7999600.
