COMMENTS

Named for fictional character Jack Reacher in the series of novels by Lee Child.

There are 2709 terms with 10,000 or fewer digits; a(2709) = 15402^2388. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 26 2016

REFERENCES

Lee Child, Bad Luck and Trouble, Delacorte Press, 2007.  In this book, the main character, Jack Reacher, likes the number 81 because it is the square of the sum of its base-10 digits.
