Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

%N a(n) = 1 + sum of digits of n-1 written in base 8.

%C If A053829 is written as a triangle then the rows converge to this sequence; see the conjecture in A000120.

%C The sequence is the base b=8 case in a family of 8 sequences for base b=2 (A063787) and bases 3 to 9 (A173523 to A173529). Common aspects (recurrences etc.) of these are documented in A173525.
