Table of n, a(n) for n=2..16.

FORMULA

a(n) <= n^(n+1) - 1. - Bert Dobbelaere, Apr 20 2021

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 3: 3^2 = 9 is the least square with 2 binary ones: 1001;

a(3) = 31: 31^2 = 961 is the least square with 3 ternary digits 2: 1022121;

a(4) = 217: 217^2 = 47089 = 23133301_4;

a(5) = 268: 268^2 = 71824 = 4244244_5.

PROG

(PARI) isok(k, n) = #select(x->(x==n-1), digits(k^2, n)) == n;

a(n) = my(k=1); while (!isok(k, n), k++); k; \\ Michel Marcus, Apr 05 2021

(Python)

from sympy.ntheory.factor_ import digits

def A342260(n):

    k = 1

    while digits(k**2, n).count(n-1) != n:

        k += 1

    return k # Chai Wah Wu, Apr 05 2021
