%N Smallest power with base>1 and exponent n whose decimal representation doesn't contain the digit 0.

%C For statistical reasons it is conjectured that the sequence is finite.

%C a(40), if it exists, is not known.

%C From _M. F. Hasler_, Mar 08 2014 (Start):

%C Finite means here that for some n, no such power > 1 exists. This might be the case already for n=40. Alternatively, the sequence might be defined for all n by letting a(n)=1 if no larger power exists. Then a(n)=n^A103663(n) for all n.

%C Differs from A238938 from n=10 on. See the OEIS wiki page for further information. (End)

%e a(10)=9765625 because 5^10 is the smallest 10th power containing no zero in its decimal representation (2^10=1024, 3^10=59049, 4^10=1048576).
