COMMENTS

a(6) is greater than 50000.

a(8) > 600000. - Giovanni Resta, Oct 08 2013

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..7.

EXAMPLE

6 is in the sequence because 6^6 = 46656, which includes a 6 in the middle.

11 is not in the sequence, because even though the substring 11 appears twice in 11^11 = 285311670611, neither occurrence is precisely in the middle.

MATHEMATICA

Do[a = IntegerDigits[n^n]; b = Length[a]; c = IntegerLength[n]; If[EvenQ[b - c] && FromDigits[Take[a, {(b - c)/2 + 1, (b + c)/2}]] == n, Print[n]], {n, 50000}]

PROG

(PARI) is(n)=my(d=digits(n), D=digits(n^n)); if((#d+#D)%2, return(0)); for(i=1, #d, if(d[i]!=D[#D/2-#d/2+i], return(0))); 1 \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 30 2016
