COMMENTS

This sequence is not periodic because log(4)/log(10) is an irrational number. - T. D. Noe, Jan 25 2007

FORMULA

a(n)=Number_of_digits{4^(n+1)}-Number_of digits{4^(n)} with n>=0 and where "Number_of digits" is a hypothetical function giving the number of digits of the argument.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=1 because 4^(1+1)=16 (two digits) 4^1=4 (one digit) and the difference is 1.

a(2)=0 because 4^(2+1)=64 (two digits) 4^(2)=16 (two digits) and the difference is 0.

MAPLE

P:=proc(n) local i, j, k, w, old; k:=4; 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);

# alternative:

H:= [seq(ilog10(4^i), i=1..1001)]:

H[2..-1]-H[1..-2]; # Robert Israel, Jul 12 2018

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = #digits(4^(n+1)) - #digits(4^n); \\ Michel Marcus, Jul 12 2018
