Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A072041 a(n) is the smallest number of the form k + reverse(k) for exactly n integers k, or -1 if no such number exists. 11

COMMENTS

The negative terms are conjectural. Moreover they have a rather low degree of confirmation, since due to the time-consuming computations only numbers from 0 to 65000 have been taken into account. Random tests of larger numbers however seem to indicate, that only selected values of n occur. - In the cognate sequence A071266 two numbers a and b are counted only once, if n = a + b, a = reverse(b), b = reverse(a). Then 33 = 12 + 21 = 30 + 03 has a count of 2 and 44 = 13 + 31 = 22 + 22 = 40 + 04 has a count of 3, so 44 appears in A071266 instead of 33.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1, since 1 can in no way be written as k + reverse(k); a(1) = 0, since 0 = k + reverse(k) for k = 0; a(3) = 33, since 33 = k + reverse(k) for k = 12, 21 and 30.
