Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

I conjectured in 1973 that there are no further terms. This question is still open.

A104320(a(n)) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 01 2005

No other terms less than 200000. - Robert G. Wilson v, Dec 06 2005

a(7) > 10^7. - Martin Ehrenstein, Jul 27 2021

If it exists, a(7) > 10^21. - Robert Saye, Mar 23 2022
