COMMENTS

Sequence of run lengths is C(n,[ (n-1)/2 ]) (= A037952), n=1,2,3,...; sequence of b where a(b) != a(b-1), b >= 3, is C(b-1,[ (b-1)/2 ]) (= A001405).

EXAMPLE

The 4th term is 4 because base 5 representations of (5+1)^1 = 11, (5+1)^2 = 121, (5+1)^3 = 1331, are all palindromic, while (5+1)^4 = 20141 is not.
