COMMENTS

It is conjectured that all numbers eventually appear. In the first 100000 terms the only fixed point is 210; it is likely no more exist.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 21 as a(1) + ... + a(5) + 21 = 98 + 21 = 119, and "119" appears in the string concatenation of a(1)..a(5) = "119879".


MATHEMATICA

nn = 120; a[1] = a[2] = 1; s = 2; w = "11"; Do[k = 1; While[! StringContainsQ[w, ToString[k + s]], k++]; a[n] = k; s += k; w = StringJoin[w, ToString[k]], {n, 3, nn}]; Array[a, nn] (* Michael De Vlieger, Oct 20 2022 *)
