COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of cycles of length 3 of autobiographical numbers in base n. For n>=5, it seems that a(n)=3/2*n^2-33/2*n+45 describes the number of cycles of length 3 in base n. The formula is correct for 5<=n<=11, but unknown for n>11. We assume it's correct for all n>=5.

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..10.

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = 3/2*n^2 - 33/2*n + 45. The formula is correct for 5<=n<=11, but unknown for n>11. We assume it's correct for all n>=5.

EXAMPLE

In base two, four, five and six there is no cycle of length 3.

In base three, there is 1 cycle of length 3 with 3 numbers:  10011112, 10101102, 2012112.

In base 10, there are 6 cycles of length 3 (18 numbers).
