 A092434 Number of words X=x(1)x(2)x(3)...x(n) of length n in three digits {0,1,2} that are invariant under the mapping X -> Y, where y(i)=((AD)^(i-1))x(1) and where (AD) denotes the absolute difference (AD)x(i)=abs(x(i+1)-x(i)) (in other words, y(i) is the i-th element in the diagonal of leading entries in the table of absolute differences of {x(1), x(2),...,x(n)). 0
 3, 4, 10, 12, 28, 32, 72, 80, 176, 192, 416, 448, 960, 1024 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS In the two digits {0,1} the corresponding sequence is 2,2,4,4,8,8,16,16,32,32,64,64,... which appears to be A060546. LINKS FORMULA It is conjectured that a(n)=(n+2)*2^((n-1) div 2). EXAMPLE The table of absolute differences of {2,1,1,0} is 2 1.1 1.0.1 0.1.1.0 with the diagonal of leading absolute differences again forming the word (2110). Thus (2110) is one of the twelve words in the digits {0,1,2} that are counted in calculating a(4). CROSSREFS Cf. A060546.
