COMMENTS

This sequence is not periodic because log(2)/log(10) is an irrational number. - T. D. Noe, Jan 10 2007

The sequence consists only of 0's and 1's. Sequence A276397 (with a 0 prefixed) is similar but differs from a(42) on. Sequence A144597 differs only from a(102) on. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 07 2016

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..105.

FORMULA

a(n) = number_of_digits{2^(n+1)} - number_of_digits{2^(n)} with n>=0.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=0 because 2^(1+1)=4 (one digit) 2^1=2 (one digit) and the difference is 0.

a(3)=1 because 2^(3+1)=16 (two digits) 2^(3)=8 (one digit) and the difference is 1.

MAPLE

P:=proc(n) local i, j, k, w, old; k:=2; for i from 1 by 1 to n do j:=k^i; w:=0; while j>0 do w:=w+1; j:=trunc(j/10); od; if i>1 then print(w-old); old:=w; else old:=w; fi; od; end: P(1000);

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=logint(2^(n+1), 10)-logint(2^n, 10) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 19 2016
