COMMENTS

Original name: "A selfdescribing sequence: The a(n) say the positions of the digits 1 inside the sequence when it is read as a string of digits."
For each n, the digit in position a(n) is equal to 1. At each step, choose the minimum integer not yet present in the sequence and not leading to a contradiction.
This sequence had been mentioned by Wasserman in 2008, cf. A098645, a variant of this sequence with additional restriction a(n+1) > a(n).  M. F. Hasler, Oct 08 2013

EXAMPLE

The sequence starts with 1: the first digit is equal to 1. In the second position we cannot write 2 because the second digit would not be 1 but 2. Then we write 3. The third digit must be 1 and the minimum number starting with 1 is 10. And so on.
