COMMENTS

Out of the digits 0,1,...,9, 5 is the only one whose ASCII representation, converted to base 10, begins with itself. So this sequence is the unique one with this property. - N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 25 2015

The octal version of this idea is simply 66,66,66,66,.., not interesting.

FORMULA

I conjecture that a(n) = 53 when n is congruent to 1, 3 or 5 (mod 8) and a(n) = 51 when n is congruent to 2 (mod 8). - Jonathan Cross (jcross(AT)juggler.net), Oct 14 2005

a(n) = (if valuation(n/2^v + 1, 2) mod 5 = 3 then 56 else 57) - 2*((v-3) mod 5), where v = valuation(n,2), i.e., n = (2s+1)*2^v. (Translation of my PARI code from June 2011.) - M. F. Hasler, Feb 02 2016

EXAMPLE

We use the following table, giving digit d, ASCII equivalent in base 8, ASCII equivalent in base 10:

.0..1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9

60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 70 71

48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57

We must start with 5 (see comment above), so the sequence grows like this:

5

53

53 51

53 51 53 49

53 51 53 49 53 51 52 57

...

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = (valuation(1+n>>n=valuation(n, 2), 2)%5!=3)+56-(n-3)%5*2  \\ M. F. Hasler, Jun 20 2011
