 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS The base 2 trajectory of 537 = A075252(4) provably does not contain a palindrome. A proof can be based on the formula given below. lim_{n -> infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = 1 for n mod 2 = 1. lim_{n -> infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = 2 for n mod 2 = 0. Interleaving of 3*A177682, 6*A177683, 3*A177684, 6*A177685.
