COMMENTS

Proposed by Mark Sapir, Math. Dept., Vanderbilt University, who remarks (August 2000) that he can prove that a(n) is always finite and that a(1) = 2.
Values of a(n) for n>1 computed numerically by Michael Kleber, Sep 02 2000 and David W. Wilson, Sep 06 2000.
All terms except the first are only conjectures. For the theorem that a(n) is always finite, see SengeStraus and Stewart.  N. J. A. Sloane, Jan 06 2011

EXAMPLE

There are two powers of 9 with digitsum 9, namely 9 and 81, so a(1) = 2.
