COMMENTS

The sequence starts with a(1) = 3 and is always extended with the smallest integer not yet present in the sequence and not leading to a contradiction.

FORMULA

a(n) = c(n) - c(n-1), where c(n) = concatenation of the first n digits, c(n) ~ 0.33*10^n, a(n) ~ 0.297*10^n. See A300000 for the proof. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 22 2018

EXAMPLE

3 + 30 = 33 which is the concatenation of 3 and 3.

3 + 30 + 297 = 330 which is the concatenation of 3, 3 and 0.

3 + 30 + 297 + 2972 = 3302 which is the concatenation of 3, 3, 0 and 2.

From n = 3 on, a(n) can be computed directly as c(n) - c(n-1), cf. formula: a(3) = 330 - 33 = 297, a(4) = 3302 - 330 = 2972, etc. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 22 2018

PROG

(PARI) a(n, show=1, a=3, c=a, d=[a])={for(n=2, n, show&&print1(a", "); a=-c+c=c*10+d[1]; d=concat(d[^1], if(n>2, digits(a)))); a} \\ M. F. Hasler, Feb 22 2018

CROSSREFS

A300000 is the lexicographically first sequence of this type, with a(1) = 1.

Cf. A299865, ..., A299872 for variants with a(1) = 2, ..., 9.
