COMMENTS

There are 15 fifty-digit terms in the sequence. Further terms are obtained (a) by inserting at the center of these terms either any number of 0's (for 10695314508256806604321090888649339244708568530399, 26730889210860738952361172793674105293199801097128, 29899105876561459824028272726867015583422139910097, 49102887245877091252834454555175879833145710289795, 55448121688278511195278554322651878413601497706634, 68315444154984874470735536347381553142144945548514, 88608272072487486790367718123691321620571972829202) or any number of 9's (for the other eight terms) and (b) by concatenating a term any number of times with itself and inserting an equal number of 0's at all junctures. Method (b) may be applied recursively to all terms. - Ray Chandler, Oct 15 2017
