COMMENTS

Umlaute are taken as "ae" (not appearing here), "oe", "ue" and "sz" (sharp s) (like in the German name of 30 = "dreißig" -> "dreissig") as "ss" (not "sz").

According to the Reder reference only "zweihundertfuenf", 205 and "zweihundertsieben", 207, satisfy a(n)=n.

This sequence is ambiguous for numbers above 100 because one can use, for instance, for 101 "hundertundeins" or "hunderteins. To avoid such ambiguities one should always stick to the shorter version.

An alternate version of this sequence could ignore Umlaute (i.e., take "a" for "ä" etc), or, more in-line with the German alphabet as it is usually listed in textbooks and reference works, taken as ä=27, ö=28, ü=29 (and then maybe ß=30, which could nonetheless remain considered as ligature of "∫s"="ss"). - M. F. Hasler, Jun 23 2013

EXAMPLE

``Null'' for 0 in German has numerical values (a=1,b=2,...,z=26) [14, 21, 12, 12] which sums up to a(0)=59.

The numerical values for ``zweihundertfuenf'' are [26, 23, 5, 9, 8,

21, 14, 4, 5, 18, 20, 6, 21, 5, 14, 6] with sum 205.

The numerical values for ``zweihundertsieben'' are [26, 23, 5, 9,

8, 21, 14, 4, 5, 18, 20, 19, 9, 5, 2, 5, 14] with sum 207.

CROSSREFS

Cf. A073327 (English version, offset 1). According to reference only 251, ``twohundredandfiftyone'' satisfies A073327(n)=n.
