COMMENTS

Numbers k such that fract((10/9)^k) < 1/k, where fract(x) = xfloor(x).
The next such number must be greater than 2*10^5.
a(19) > 10^7.  Robert Price, Mar 24 2019
Given a number k that is not only a term of this sequence but also has the property that the integer part of (10/9)^k is divisible by 9, we can expect that k+1 will likely also be a term of the sequence. E.g., k = 2189647 is a term because fract((10/9)^k) = 0.000000373557... < 0.000000456694... = 1/k, and since floor((10/9)^k) is divisible by 9, the integer and fractional parts of (10/9)^(k+1) will be exactly 10/9 times the integer and fractional parts of (10/9)^k, respectively, yielding a fractional part (10/9) * 0.000000373557... = 0.000000415064... < 0.000000456694... = 1/(k+1), so k+1 = 2189648 is also a term.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 7 since fract((10/9)^7) = 0.09075... < 1/7, but fract((10/9)^k) >= 1/k for 3 <= k <= 6.
