Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A056641 Least positive integer k for which (b+1)^k is not palindromic in base b, b = 2, 3, 4, ... 0

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).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..91.

EXAMPLE

The 4-th 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.
