A133500 The powertrain or power train map: Powertrain(n): if abcd... is the decimal expansion of a number n, then the powertrain of n is the number n' = a^b*c^d* ..., which ends in an exponent or a base according as the number of digits is even or odd. a(0) = 0 by convention. 35

COMMENTS

We take 0^0 = 1.

The fixed points are in A135385.

For 1-digit or 2-digit numbers this is the same as A075877. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 28 2012

a(A221221(n)) = A133048(A221221(n)) = A222493(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 27 2013
