COMMENTS

It turns out that "...at least n..." and "...exactly n..." yield the same (and thus strictly increasing) sequence.  M. F. Hasler, Feb 02 2009

(PARI) A054039(n, k=0) = { while( #Set(Vec(Str(k^2)))<n, k++); k } /* If "exactly n" would correspond to a different sequence, this would yield some term twice in a row. The optional 2nd arg can be used to find further terms with a given # of distinct digits.  M. F. Hasler, Feb 02 2009 */
