A190582 Generalized McCarthy function: a(n) = n - s if n > c; otherwise, a(n) = a(a(n+t)) with d = t - s > 0, with parameters t=15, s=9, c=21. 0

COMMENTS

The parameters t=11, s=10, c=100 give the McCarthy 91-Function A103847.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..49.

FORMULA

The sequence begins with a(1) = d*floor((c+d-1)/d) + 1 - s;

  if n <= c and c > d then a(n) = a(n-d);

  if n <= c <= d then a(n) = a(1) + n - 1;

  if n > c then a(n) = n - s.

EXAMPLE

For t=9, s=5, d=t-s=4, and

  c=1: (0,-3,-2,-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=2: (0, 1,-2,-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=3: (0, 1, 2,-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=4: (0, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=5: (4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=6: (4, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=7: (4, 5, 6, 3, 4, 5, 6, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=8: (4, 5, 6, 7, 4, 5, 6, 7, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)

  c=9: (8, 5, 6, 7, 8, 5, 6, 7, 8, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, ...)
