COMMENTS

Sequences like this are more naturally considered with the first nonzero term in position 1. But this sequence would then match A000027 for its first 193 terms.

Most terms in this sequence appear in long period-5 quasilinear runs. These runs are separated by 441 other terms, and each run is approximately six times as long as the previous.

FORMULA

If the index is between 67 and 195 (inclusive), then a(7n) = 7n+2, a(7n+1) = 7n+195, a(7n+2) = 7n+197, a(7n+3) = 7, a(7n+4) = 2n+431, a(7n+5) = n+379, a(7n+6) = 191.

For nonnegative integers i, if 1<=5n+r<=(2417/5)*6^(i+1)-3382/5, then

a((2417/5)*6^i-1177/5+5n) = 5

a((2417/5)*6^i-1177/5+5n+1) = (7251/5)*6^i - 2046/5 + 3n

a((2417/5)*6^i-1177/5+5n+2) = 3

a((2417/5)*6^i-1177/5+5n+3) = (2417/5)*6^i - 1162/5 + 5n

a((2417/5)*6^i-1177/5+5n+4) = (7251/5)*6^i - 2041/5 + 3n.

MAPLE
