A130011


A selfdescribing sequence. Pick any integer n in the sequence; this n says: "There are n terms in the sequence that are <= 3n". This sequence is the slowest increasing one with this property.

COMMENTS

See comments in A094591 and A037988.
It is not clear in what sense "slowest increasing" is meant in the description of this sequence. The definition requires that there be exactly a(k) terms <= 3 a(k), for any index k. Therefore, a(n+1) > 3n for all indices n of the form n = a(k). Thus, any such sequence has an infinite number of terms a(k) >= 3k2. The lexicographically first variant A260107, which starts (1, 4, 5, 6, 13, 16, 19, 20, 21, 22, ...), also has all its terms a(k) <= 3k2, so it cannot be said to increase faster.  M. F.
