 A141447 Set m_0=0, and let m_n be the least positive integer that cannot be written in the form Sum_{k=1..oo} a_k k!, with a_k in {m_0,m_1, ..., m_{n-1}}. 0
 0, 1, 4, 5, 22, 23, 82, 83, 466, 467, 478, 479, 1090486, 1090487, 1090774, 1090775, 1090846, 1090847 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS This sequence was suggested by Kevin O'Bryant, who provided terms a(0)-a(11); a(12)-a(17) were from David S. Newman. The numbers always come in pairs, the first even, then the following odd number. The next number in the sequence exceeds 3*10^6. LINKS EXAMPLE Example: When m_0=0 and m_1=1, the numbers from 1 to 3 may be written 1=1*1!, 2=1*2!, 3= 1*1! + 1*2!, but there is no way to write 4. So m_2 is taken to be 4. MATHEMATICA (* These values can be found by entering m={0, 1} separately and then iterating the following program: *) searchbound=2 10^6; poly=Expand[Total[qSelect[m, EvenQ]]Product[Total[qSelect[#*n!&/@m, #searchbound&]], {n, 2, 10}]]; i=1; found=False; While[foundFalse&&i<2000000, i=i+1; If[Coefficient[poly[[i+1]], q, 2i]0, found=True; AppendTo[m, 2i]; AppendTo[m, 2i+1]; Print["m= ", m]]] (* Please note: I copied and pasted this program, but it has printed on this screen differently from the way it did in the Mathematica environment. If it does not run as is, I can send the Mathematica file to anyone who wants it. *) CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A178625 A284911 A091130 * A129346 A291670 A176957 Adjacent sequences:  A141444 A141445 A141446 * A141448 A141449 A141450 KEYWORD nonn AUTHOR David S.
