 A283888 Relative of Hofstadter Q-sequence: a(n) = max(0, n+27298) for n <= 0; a(n) = a(n-a(n-1)) + a(n-a(n-2)) + a(n-a(n-3)) for n > 0. 5

 OFFSET 1,1 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 27298 terms. Most terms in this sequence appear in a long pattern stretching from a(85652) through a(141867984), of 16 interleaved sequences. This sequence has exactly 141868181 terms (of positive index). a(141868181) = 0, so an attempt to calculate a(141868182) would refer to itself. LINKS Nathan Fox, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..90000 FORMULA If the index is between 67 and 27299 (inclusive), then a(7n) = 7n+2, a(7n+1) = 7n+27300, a(7n+2) = 7n+27302, a(7n+3) = 7, a(7n+4) = 2n+54641, a(7n+5) = n+54589, a(7n+6) = 27296. MAPLE A283888:=proc(n) option remember: if n <= 0 then max(0, n+27298): else A283888(n-A283888(n-1)) + A283888(n-A283888(n-2)) + A283888(n-A283888(n-3)): fi: end: CROSSREFS Cf.
