Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

Index entries for the Kaprekar map

EXAMPLE

For n = 10, 10_10 = 101_3. So, a(10) = 110_3 - 11_3 = 12 - 4 = 8. - Indranil Ghosh, Feb 02 2017

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := With[{dd = IntegerDigits[n, 3]}, FromDigits[ReverseSort[dd], 3] - FromDigits[Sort[dd], 3]];
