COMMENTS

In factorial base (A007623) these numbers look as:

  1, 11, 121, 2001, 22011, 242121, 3004001, 33044011, 363524121, 4011111001, 44122221011, 485344431121, 5018801043001, <the first term with digit-value "10">, ...

This sequence is obtained by setting a(1) = 1, and then adding to each previous term a(n-1) the same factorial base representation, but shifted by one factorial digit left. Only when term does not contain any adjacent nonzero digits, like is case with a(4) = "2001" or a(7) = "3004001", the next term a(5) = "22011" (or respectively a(8) = "33044011") shows the uncorrupted "doublevision pattern". In other cases, like for example when going from a(2) to a(3), "11" to "121", two nonzero digits are summed up and there is possibly also a carry digit propagating to the left.

Note that the sequence is computed in such a way that also factorial base digits larger than 9 are correctly summed together. That is, the eventual decimal corruption present in sequence like A007623 does not affect to the actual values of this sequence. (See the implementation of A153880).

FORMULA

a(1) = 1; for n > 1, a(n) = a(n-1) + A153880(a(n-1)).

Other identities. For all n >= 1:

A084558(a(n)) = n. [The length of the factorial base representation of the n-th term is always n.]
