Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

A variant of the 'look-and-repeat' sequence A225329, without run cut-off. It describes at each step the preceding digits by repeating the frequency number.

The sequence is determined by triples of digits. The first two terms of a triple are the repeated frequency and the last term is the digit.

There are different optional rules to build such a sequence. This method 2 never considers twice the already said digits.

With this rule and seed, a(n) is always equal to 1, 2, 3 or 5, and the sequence is the simple concatenation of the look-and-repeat sequence by block A225329. This is because all blocks of A225329 begin with 2 or 3 and end with 2 and therefore, there is no possible interaction between blocks after concatenation.

It never contains series of four identical digits (except the first four one's), but contains series of five identical digits. However five 5's never appear. Proof : suppose it appears for the first time in a(n)-a(n+4); because of 'five five 5' in 55555, it would imply that 55555 appears form a smaller n, which is a contradiction.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1, then a(2) = a(3) = a(4) = 1 (one one 1). Leaving out the first 1 already said, we have now three 1, then a(5) = a(6) = 3,  and  a(7) = 1, etc.
