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.

A284169 a(n) is the least k such that sigma(binomial(m,k)) = sigma(binomial(m-1,k-1)) + sigma(binomial(m-1,k)) where m = A284168(n). 1

COMMENTS

Consider the triangle formed by replacing each m in Pascal's triangle with sigma(m). Then this sequence consists of the least column indices of the terms that are equal to the sum of its NW and N neighbors, as in a Pascal triangle.

EXAMPLE

Here is the triangle also described in A074801.

1,

1, 1,

1, 3, 1,

1, 4, 4, 1,

1, 7, 12, 7, 1,

1, 6, 18, 18, 6, 1,

On row index 3, we have 4 which is the sum of 1 and 3 its NW and N neighbors, this is A284168(1). The corresponding column index is 1, so a(1) = 1.

PROG

(PARI) T(n, k) = sigma(binomial(n, k));

isokT(n, k) = T(n-1, k-1) + T (n-1, k) == T(n, k);

isokn(n) = for (k=1, n-1, if (isokT(n, k), return(1)));

listak(nn) = for (n=1, nn, for (k=1, n-1, if (isokT(n, k), print1(k, ", "); break)));
