 A276457 a(n) is the number of times that a(n-1) appears in the concatenation of all numbers from a(0) to a(n-2), with a(0) = 0. 6

%N a(n) is the number of times that a(n-1) appears in the concatenation of all numbers from a(0) to a(n-2), with a(0) = 0.

%C 138, 185 and 199 are three smallest numbers that do not appear among the first 5000 terms of the sequence. They first appear at n = 8776, 5117 and 10580 respectively.

%C 1187 and 1190 are two smallest numbers that do not appear among the first 100000 terms.

%C Question: will every natural number eventually appear in the sequence?

%C The sequence can be started with any number a(0). The terms will be different, but for larger n behavior will be similar for all a(0).

%F a(n) = A142150(n) = A171181(n), if 0<=n<=20.

%e From a(0) to a(0), a(1) appears once, thus a(2) = 1.

%e From a(0) to a(1), a(2) appears 0 times, thus a(3) = 0.

%e ...

%e From a(0) to a(19), a(20) = 10 appears once, in the form of '1,0'. Thus a(21) = 1.
