(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A001155 Describe the previous term! (method A - initial term is 0). 16
0, 10, 1110, 3110, 132110, 1113122110, 311311222110, 13211321322110, 1113122113121113222110, 31131122211311123113322110, 132113213221133112132123222110 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Method A = 'frequency' followed by 'digit'-indication.

a(n), A001140, A001141, A001143, A001145, A001151 and A001154 are all identical apart from the last digit of each term (the seed). This is because digits other than 1, 2 and 3 never arise elsewhere in the terms (other than at the end of each of them) of look-and-say sequences of this type (as is mentioned by Carmine Suriano in A006751). - Chayim Lowen, Jul 16 2015

E.g. the term after 3110 is obtained by saying "one 3, two 1's, one 0", which gives 132110.
