Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A077712 a(1) = 1, a(n) = the smallest squarefree number > a(n-1) which contains all the digits of a(n-1). 1
1, 10, 101, 110, 1001, 1010, 10001, 10010, 100001, 100010, 1000001, 1000010, 10000001, 10000010, 100000001, 100000010, 1000000001, 1000000010, 10000000001, 10000000010, 100000000010, 1000000000001, 10000000000001 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Conjecture: Terms contain only two types of digits, i.e., 0 and 1.


Table of n, a(n) for n=0..22.


Beginning with a(3), sequence follows a regular pattern: 10^2+1, 10^2+10, 10^3+1, 10^3+10, etc. until at a(21) the pattern is disrupted by 10^11+1 which is not squarefree (see A086982). 10^12+10 is also absent from the sequence since it is also not squarefree. The pattern resumes after this disruption until the next occurrence of 10^k+1 which is not squarefree, k=21, 33, 39, 55, ... The conjecture that the sequence is composed of terms containing only the digits 0 and 1 is certainly true up to 10^406+1 where both it and 10^407+1 are not squarefree. Indeed beginning with a(3) the terms contain exactly two 1 digits and the rest 0's up to this point. The term following 10^406+10 will introduce a third nonzero digit, perhaps a 1, but the pattern of the sequence changes dramatically at this point. - Ray Chandler, Aug 02 2003

Term following a(739)=10^406+10 is a(740)=10^407+11 so the conjecture is still in play. - Ray Chandler, Aug 05 2003
