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^233/2*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.

FORMULA

a(n)=3/2*n^233/2*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).
