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

The base 3 is listed in A260343, which means that a(3) = A260851(3) = 439 = 121021_3 is prime and therefore in A260852. See these sequences for more information.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 0 is the result of the empty sum corresponding to 0 digits.

a(2) = 16 = 121_3 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 1).

a(3) = 439 = 121021_3 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 10, 2, 1), where the middle "10" is the base-3 representation of 3.
