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.

COMMENTS

This sequence is based on the cylinder flow equation that is in most fluid dynamics texts. I used a n*log(n) circulation term to slow down the progression that gets very large very fast after n=36.

I take this sequence as an analog of the inverse of the rate of flow in fluid layers around a cylinder and the fluid comes to a near stop when n gets greater than 36. A similar complex plane Julia to this is also possible using the iterative k for the n in this equation and leaving out the absolute value and floor functions.
