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(n1), 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(n1), cf. formula: a(3) = 880  88 = 792, a(4) = 8807  880 = 7927, etc.  M. F. Hasler, Feb 22 2018
