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”).

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A307022 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) = 3 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 51, 360, 3363, 33363, ..., 3...363.

Next term has 131 digits. - Giovanni Resta, Mar 20 2019

EXAMPLE

1/3 = 0.3333...

1/3 + 1/(3+51) = 0.351851...

1/3 + 1/(3+51) + 1/(3+51+9558) = 0.3519558884...

The sum is 0.3 51 9558 ...
