COMMENTS

R is an optimal Wichmann ruler iff R is an optimal ruler (for definition see A103294) and there exist two integers r>=0 and s>=0 such that the type of the difference representation of the ruler is [1*r, r+1, (2r+1)*r, (4r+3)*s, (2r+2)*(r+1), 1*r].
a(n) is a subsequence of A193803.

EXAMPLE

[0, 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 26, 37, 48, 54, 60, 66, 67, 68] is an optimal Wichmann ruler with length 68 of Wichmann type (2,3). By contrast [0, 1, 2, 8, 15, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 59, 63, 65, 68] is an optimal ruler with length 68 which is not a Wichmann ruler.
