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.

EXAMPLE

7480 is included because 7480, 7481 and 7482 are all happy numbers.

MATHEMATICA

happyQ[n_] := Nest[Plus @@(IntegerDigits[ # ]^2\)&, n, 50] == 1); Transpose[Select[Partition[Select[Range[50000], happyQ], 3, 1], #[[3]] - #[[2]] == #[[2]] - #[[1]] == 1 &]][[1]]

f[n_] := Total[IntegerDigits[n]^2]; t = Select[Range[50000], NestWhile[f, #, UnsameQ, All] == 1 &]; t[[Select[Range[Length[t] - 2],  t[[#]] == t[[# + 1]] - 1 == t[[# + 2]] - 2 &]]] (* T. D. Noe, Aug 23 2011 *)
