 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS A happy number is a number that after iteration of sum of squares of digits eventually reaches 1 (A007770). The happy property is base-dependent. This sequence lists the smallest number that is happy in bases 2, 3, ..., n. All numbers are happy in binary and base 4. LINKS EXAMPLE a(8) = 58775 because: Base 2: 1110010110010111 - 1010 - 10 - 1, Base 3: 2222121212 - 1011 - 10 - 1, Base 4: 321121113 - 132 - 32 - 31 - 22 - 20 - 10 - 1, Base 5: 3340100 - 120 - 10 - 1, Base 6: 1132035 - 121 - 10 - 1, Base 7: 333233 - 100 - 1, Base 8: 162627 - 202 - 10 - 1, Base 9 fails since the end is the 58 - 108 - 72 cycle and fails to reach 1.
