The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation. Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 A305668 Engel expansion whose sum has the concatenation of its terms as decimal part. Case a(1) = 10. 12

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS a(7) is the last term because the sequence cannot be extended. At any step a(n) is chosen as the least number greater than a(n-1) that meets the requirement. Up to 8110039 the sum is 0.10 100 316 5169 183766 972915 8110039 008537... but the next term would be less than 1/(10*100*316*5169*183766*972915*8110039^2) = 0.00 000 000 0000 000000 000000 00000000 005206195... and the zeros after 8110039 cannot be removed.
