FORMULA

a(n+1) = A045918(A004086(a(n))). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 02 2014

EXAMPLE

E.g. the term after 1211 is obtained by saying "two 1's, one 2, one 1", which gives 211211.

MATHEMATICA

A022482[1]:=2; A022482[n_]:=A022482[n]=FromDigits[Flatten[{Length[#], First[#]}&/@Split[Reverse[IntegerDigits[A022482[n-1]]]]]]; Map[A022482, Range[15]] (* Peter J. C. Moses, Apr 22 2013 *)

PROG

(Haskell)

a022482 n = a022482_list !! (n-1)

a022482_list = iterate (a045918 . a004086) 2
