COMMENTS

Numbers n such that 1/n is in the Cantor set.

A subsequence of A054591. The first member of A054591 which does not belong to this sequence is 146. See A135666.

This is not a subsequence of A005836 (949 belongs to the present sequence but not to A005836). See A170830, A170853.

EXAMPLE

1/3 in base 3 can be written as either .1 or .0222222... The latter version contains no 1's, so 3 is in the sequence.

1/4 in base 3 is .02020202020..., so 4 is in the sequence.

MATHEMATICA

(Mma code from T. D. Noe, Feb 20 2010. This produces the sequence except for the powers of 3.)

# Find the length of the periodic part of the fraction:

FracLen[n_] := Module[{r = n/3^IntegerExponent[n, 3]}, MultiplicativeOrder[3, r]]

# Generate the fractions and select those that have no 1's:

Select[Range[100000], ! MemberQ[Union[RealDigits[1/#, 3, FracLen[ # ]][[1]]], 1] &]

PROG

(PARI) is(n, R=divrem(3^logint(n, 3), n), S=0)={while(R[1]!=1&&!bittest(S, R[2]), S+=1<<R[2]; R=divrem(R[2]*3, n)); R[1]!=1||R[2]==0} \\ M. F. Hasler, Feb 27 2018
