COMMENTS

Let "N_b" denote "N read in base b" and let "N" denote "N written in base 10" (as in normal life). The sequence is given by 16, 32_16, (64_32)_16, ((128_64)_32)_16, etc., or in other words

......16....32.....64....128.......etc.

..............16.....32.....64.........

.......................16.....32.......

................................16.....

where the subscripts are evaluated from the top downwards

More precisely, "N_b" means "Take decimal expansion of N and evaluate it as if it were a base-b expansion".

The next term is too large to include.

A "dungeon" of numbers.
