 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Comments from M. F. Hasler, Feb 20 2020 (Start) The index at which any n > 2 appears for the last time is given by A005096(n) = n! - n. For m>2, a(n) > m for n > A005096(m). The integer 1 appears only once as a(0), the integer 2 is the only positive integer which never appears. (End) It would be nice to have an estimate for the growth of the upper envelope of this sequence - what is lim sup a(n)? The answer seems to be controlled by A333537. - N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 12 2020 Paul Zimmermann suggests that perhaps a(n) is O(log(n)^2). My estimate was n^(1/3), although that seems a bit low. - N. J. A.

A332584 for a "concatenation in base 10" variant. See also A005096, A332558 (essentially identical to this one). For records, see A333532 and A333533 (and A333537).
