COMMENTS

Interpreted as consecutive steps along directions according to a basis of vectors represented by the tenth roots of unity in the complex number plane the sequence traces out the path of a single spiral of a tenfold twin pattern. All points are located on a pentagonal Z module (following the ideas of Quiquandon et al.). The tenfold twin pattern is unique in that the local structure across the twin boundaries is identically coherent to the local structure within the twin domains. The tenfold twin pattern is enantiomorphous, depending on the sign of the irrational shift of 1/(4*tau), with tau = (1+sqrt(5))/2 the Golden Ratio, along a [110] direction of the twin domain's orthorhombic unit cell. The sequence expresses the fact, that the tenfold twin pattern has no adjustable parameters, except for an arbitrary general scaling factor.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(sqrt( 2*(n-1) ) + [n in { 2*k + ceil(2*sqrt(k)) | k in N}] mod 10. Note, that floor(sqrt( 2*(n) ) is A172471 (here corrected for its offset in the combined formula), while 2*k + ceil(2*sqrt(k)) is A078633. [] denotes the Iverson bracket.
