COMMENTS

There are 12 twelve-digit terms in the sequence. Further terms are obtained (a) by inserting at the center of these terms either any number of 0's (for 178574614218, 277673713317, 614218178574, 713317277673) or any number of 9's (for the other eight terms) and (b) by concatenating a term any number of times with itself and inserting an equal number of 0's at all junctures. Method (b) may be applied recursively to all terms. - Revised thanks to a comment from Hans Havermann, Jan 27 2004.
