COMMENTS

First non-occurrence happens with exponent 105. There is no x such that sum-of-digits{x^105}=x (x>1). - Patrick De Geest, Aug 15 1998

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 8 since 8^3 = 512 and 5+1+2 = 8; a(5) = 28 because 28 is least number > 1 with 28^5 = 17210368, 1+7+2+1+0+3+6+8 = 28. 53^7 = 1174711139837 -> 1+1+7+4+7+1+1+1+3+9+8+3+7 = 53.

a(10) = 82 because 82^10 = 13744803133596058624 and 1 + 3 + 7 + 4 + 4 + 8 + 0 + 3 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 5 + 9 + 6 + 0 + 5 + 8 + 6 + 2 + 4 = 82.

a(13) = 20: 20^13=81920000000000000, 8+1+9+2=20.

a(17) = 80: 80^17=225179981368524800000000000000000, 2+2+5+1+7+9+9+8+1+3+6+8+5+2+4+8 = 80.
