Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A283890 Relative of Hofstadter Q-sequence: a(n) = max(0, n+10001) for n <= 0; a(n) = a(n-a(n-1)) + a(n-a(n-2)) + a(n-a(n-3)) + a(n-a(n-4)) for n > 0. 4

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 10001 terms.

This sequence has some stretches where it is quasilinear, but it appears to be ultimately chaotic.
