FORMULA

a(n) = A016113(n)^2. - M. F. Hasler, Jun 08 2014

EXAMPLE

836^2 = 698896, which is palindromic, so 698896 is in the sequence.

1001^2 = 1002001, which is palindromic, but it has an odd number of digits, so it's not in the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

Select[Range[1000000]^2, PalindromeQ[#] && OddQ[Floor[Log[10, #]]] &] (* Alonso del Arte, Oct 11 2019 *)

PROG

(PARI) is_A027829(n)={issquare(n)&&Vecrev(n=digits(n))==n&&!bittest(#n, 0)} \\ This is faster than first checking for even length if applied to numbers known to have an even number of digits, as should be the case for a systematic search. For this, one should only consider squares, i.e., rather use is_A016113.  - M. F. Hasler, Jun 08 2014

(Scala) def isPalindromic(n: BigInt): Boolean = n.toString == n.toString.reverse

val squares = ((1: BigInt) to (1000000: BigInt)).map(n => n * n)

squares.filter(n => isPalindromic(n) && n.toString.length % 2 == 0) // Alonso del Arte, Oct 07 2019
