int n=1111;int m=1;while(x>m++){n=Integer.parseInt((n*n+"").substring(0,4));}

x->{int n=1111;int m=1;while(x>m++){n=Integer.parseInt((n*n+"").substring(0,4))‌​;}return n;}

x->{int n=1111;for(;--x>0;){n=Integer.parseInt((n*n+"").substring(0,4));}}

x->{long n=1111;for(;--x>0;){n=Long.valueOf((n*n+"").substring(0,4));}}

Each repetition makes n the first 4 characters of n*n.
