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 first prime in this sequence is a(16) = A260871(11). Since a(12) is not prime, the base 12 is not listed in A260343.

FORMULA

For n < b = 12, we have a(n) = R(b,n)^2, where R(b,n) = (b^n-1)/(b-1) are the base-b repunits.

EXAMPLE

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

a(2) = (12+1)^2 = 12^2 + 2*12 + 1 = 121_12, concatenation of (1, 2, 1).

a(13) = 123456789ab101110ba987654321_12 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 3, ..., 9, a, b, 10, 11, 10, b, ..., 1), where "b, 10, 11" are the base-12 representations of 11, 12, 13.

PROG

(PARI) a(n, b=12)=sum(i=1, #n=concat(vector(n*2-1, k, digits(min(k, n*2-k), b))), n[i]*b^(#n-i))

CROSSREFS

Base-12 variant of A173426 (base 10) and A173427 (base 2). See A260853 - A260866 for variants in other bases.
