A217866 Last time n appears in the first differences of n*log(n): A217865. 1

COMMENTS

Conjecture: the last time n appears is always before the first time n+2 appears.

For example, examine: 1, 2, 2, 3, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 3, 3, 4, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3, 4, 4, 5, 4, 4, 4 (A217865).

We can see that the last 2 is before the first 4, the last 3 is before the first 5, etc.

LINKS

EXAMPLE

2 lasts appears in A217865 at position 5 so a(2)=5.

PROG

(JavaScript)

function lastIndex(arr, k) {

p=-1;

for (a=1; a<arr.length; a++) if (arr[a]==k) p=a;

return p;

}

d=new Array();

for (i=1; i<500000; i++)

d[i]=Math.floor((i+1)*Math.log(i+1))-Math.floor(i*Math.log(i));

for (i=1; i<100; i++) document.write(lastIndex(d, i)+", ");
