Add to a(n) a product of digits

Hello SeqFans,

just add to a(n) the product of the two closest digits to the comma printed before a(n); start with a(1)=a(2)=1:

S=1,1,2,4,12,16,18,24,40,56,56,86,134,140,144,144,148,152,160,162,162,164,166,170,176,176,182...

Hope this is of some interest!

Best,

E.

I think you mean "add to a(n-1)", i.e. a(n) = a(n-1) + prod(the least sig. digit of a(n-2), the most sig. digit of a(n-1)).
