COMMENTS

1 and 2 are factorions of every integer number base, since 1 = 1! and 2 = 2!. Thus every integer number base has at least 2 factorions.  Michael De Vlieger, Nov 23 2015
A factorion is an integer which is equal to the sum of factorials of its digits. See A193163 for the list of all factorions in base n.  M. F. Hasler, Nov 25 2015

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 4 because base 6 has the factorions {1, 2, 25, 26}. Expressed in base 6 these are {1, 2, 41, 42}. 1! = 1 and 2! = 2 and are factorions in every integer base b >= 2. Additionally, 4! + 1! = 24 + 1 = 25 and 4! + 2! = 24 + 2 = 26.  Michael De Vlieger, Nov 23 2015
a(2) = 2 = #{ 1, 2 }, indeed 1 = 1! and 2 = 10[2] = 1! + 0! and there cannot be any other since the sum of factorials of the binary digits equals the number of these digits, and from 3 on all numbers are larger than the number of their binary digits.  M. F. Hasler, Nov 25 2015
