COMMENTS

The sequence starts with a(1) = 8 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) ~ 0.88*10^n, a(n) ~ 0.79*10^n. See A300000 for the proof. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 22 2018

EXAMPLE

8 + 80 = 88 which is the concatenation of 8 and 8.

8 + 80 + 792 = 880 which is the concatenation of 8, 8 and 0.

8 + 80 + 792 + 7927 = 8807 which is the concatenation of 8, 8, 0 and 7.

From n = 3 on, a(n) can be computed directly as c(n) - c(n-1), cf. formula: a(3) = 880 - 88 = 792, a(4) = 8807 - 880 = 7927, etc. - M. F. Hasler, Feb 22 2018

PROG

(PARI) a(n, show=1, a=8, 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.
