This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



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.

J. Savard, The Interval Method [Wayback Machine copy]


There are 144 possible interval method wirings for a 6-contact rotor, based on 36 rotations of both the whole rotor or one side of the rotor, starting from the four sequences: (1,2,4,6,3,5), (1,2,5,6,3,4), (1,4,3,2,6,5) and (1,6,3,5,4,2), having respectively the patterns of intervals (0,0,1,2,4,5), (0,0,2,5,1,4), (0,2,0,4,1,5) and (0,4,0,1,5,2)


Cf. A006717.
