COMMENTS

Apart from the initial 1, common difference of the arithmetic progression pertaining to the sequence A074991.

This is also a root sequence pertaining to the patterned perfect square sequence 1369, 11336689,111333666889,... i.e. k ones, k threes and k sixes followed by (k-1) 8s and a 9. (37^2 = 1369).

This is a self-complementing sequence: each term has even number of digits (the first one has to be read 01, the leading zero is important). If you add the first half to the second half of any term, you get the sequence A011557, powers of 10. Furthermore, the reciprocals of the sequence terms, except the first one, give a sequence of periodic terms with period sequence as in A008585, a(n)=3n, and value given by A086574, a(n)=k where R(k+3)=3. - Rodolfo A. Fiorini, Jul 14 2016
