Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

First Bernoulli polynomial evaluated at x=n! and multiplied by 2.

From Jaroslav Krizek, Jan 23 2010: (Start)

a(0) = 1, for n >= 1: a(n) = numbers m for which there is one iteration {floor(r/k)} for k = n, n-1, n-2, ... 1 with property r mod k = k-1 starting at r = m.

For n = 5: a(5) = 239;

floor(239/5) = 47, 239 mod 5 = 4;

floor( 47/4) = 11,  47 mod 4 = 3;

floor( 11/3) =  3,  11 mod 3 = 2;

floor(  3/2) =  1,   3 mod 2 = 1;

floor(  1/1) =  1,   1 mod 1 = 0. (End)

With offset 1, is the eigensequence of a triangle with the natural numbers (1, 2, 3,...) as the right border, (1, 1, 2, 3, 4,...) as the left border; and the rest zeros. - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 01 2016
