A280295


Smallest number with precipice n. Descending by the main diagonal of the pyramid described in A245092, the height difference between the level a(n) (starting from the top) and the level of the next terrace is equal to n.

COMMENTS

The structure of the step pyramid arises after the 90degreezigzag folding of the diagram of the isosceles triangle A237593.
The terraces at the kth level of the pyramid are also the parts of the symmetric representation of sigma(k), k >= 1.
The step pyramid is also one of the 3Dquadrants of the step pyramid described in A244050.
For more information about the precipices see A277437 and A280223.
Is this sequence infinite?

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 9 because descending by the main diagonal of the pyramid, the height difference between the level 9 and the level of the next terrace is equal to 3, and 9 is the smallest number with this property.
