A307021 a(n) is defined by the condition that the decimal expansion of the Sum_{n>=1} 1/(Sum_{k=1..n} a(k)) = 1/a(1) + 1/(a(1)+a(2)) + 1/(a(1)+a(2)+a(3)) + ... begins with the concatenation of these numbers; also a(1) = 10 and a(n) > a(n-1). 6

COMMENTS

At any step only the least value greater than a(n) is taken into consideration. As a(2) we could choose 95, 311, ...

Next term has 81 digits. - Giovanni Resta, Mar 20 2019

EXAMPLE

1/10 = 0.1000...

1/10 + 1/(10+95) = 0.1095238...

1/10 + 1/(10+95) + 1/(10+95+45660) = 0.109545660283...

The sum is 0.10 95 45660 ...
