COMMENTS

The minorizing sequence for all sequences of type A179382,A179480 with arbitrary periodic rotation of the binary operations <+>,<>.


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..12.


EXAMPLE

Let n=12, 2n1=23. Considering periodic sequence <+>,<>,<+>,<>,..., we have 23<+>1=3, 23<>3=5, 23<+>5=7, 23<>7=1, 23<+>1=3,... Thus a(12)<=4. It is not difficult to verify that a(12)>3. Thus a(12)=4.
