A320284 Pierce expansion whose sum has the concatenation of its terms as decimal part. Case a(1) = 3. 10
3, 322, 991, 8111, 52473, 60206, 529366, 957640, 7693680, 69425274 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS
a(10) is the last term because the sequence cannot be further extended (see A305668 for the reason why in a similar sequence). - Giovanni Resta, Oct 11 2018

EXAMPLE
1/3 = 0.3333...
1/3 - 1/(3*322) = 0.33229813...
1/3 - 1/(3*322) + 1/(3*322*991) = 0.33229918124...
1/3 - 1/(3*322) + 1/(3*322*991) - 1/(3*322*991*8111)= 0.332299181115244...
The sum is 0.3 322 991 8111 ...
MAPLE
P:=proc(q, h) local a, b, c, d, n, t, x; x:=1;

for n from x to q do if trunc(evalf(a+(-1)^t/(c*n), 500)*10^(b+ilog10(n)+1))=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n
then x:=n+1; b:=b+ilog10(n)+1; d:=d*10^(ilog10(n)+1)+n; a:=a+(-1)^t/(c*n); c:=c*n; t:=t+1; print(n); fi; od; end: P(10^9, 3);
