COMMENTS

If A053828 is regarded as a triangle then the rows converge to this sequence, i.e., a(n) = A053828(7^k+n1) in the limit k>infinity, where k plays the role of a row index in A053828.
See conjecture in the entry A000120.
This is the case for base b=7 for the sumofdigits. A063787 and A173523 to A173526 deal with the bases 2 to 6. A173525 contains generic remarks concerning these 8 sequences which look in equivalent ways at their sumofdigits as a sequence with triangular structure.

FORMULA

a(n) = A053828(7^k+n1) where k>= ceil( log_7(n/6)). [R. J. Mathar, Dec 09 2010]
Conjecture: Fixed point of the morphism 1>{1,2,3,...b}, 2>{2,3,4...,b+1},
j>{j,j+1,...,j+b1} for b=7. [Joerg Arndt, Dec 08 2010]
