 A342215 Two successive terms always share a common "digit pattern" (see the Comments section). The successive "common digit patterns", concatenated, reproduce the successive terms of the sequence, concatenated. 1

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS A "common pattern" shared by two successive integers A and B is a string of digits present in both A and B. For example, if A = 1 and B = 10 the common pattern is "1"; if A = 2021 and B = 302 the common pattern is "02". We allow the successive terms A and B to share more than one pattern, but only in the case of a single shared longer string of digits - longer than the other possible strings; as A = 2021 and B = 231 share both the strings "2" and "1", which are of the same length, B cannot follow A in the sequence. As A = 2021 and B = 2031 share both the strings "20" and "1" and as the string "20" is longer than the string "1", B could follow A in the sequence (the "common pattern" would be "20" here). This "common pattern" idea was imagined to inspire people having almost no mathematical skills - only two eyes (or one single eye) and a pencil. Caveat: to reduce the computing time, no term > 10000 was tested. Given the doubts about this sequence, please do NOT add a b-file. N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 14 2021 LINKS Carole Dubois, Conjectured table of n, a(n) for n = 1..789 EXAMPLE The first ten terms are 1, 10, 100, 101, 1201, 301, 12, 20, 104, 13. The "common patterns" are 1  10   10   01    01    1   2   0    1 and their concatenation is 1101001011201 - which is exactly the start of the concatenation of the sequence's terms. CROSSREFS Cf.
