Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

EXAMPLE

From Michael De Vlieger, May 19 2017: (Start)

A run of subsequent numbers with nondecreasing phi is of length 1 if it consists of a single number n with phi(n-1) > phi(n) > phi(n+1) (else n belongs to a run of length >= 2). This happens first for a(1) = 314.

Phi(14..18) = (6, 8, 8, 16, 6), therefore the first run of 4 numbers with nondecreasing phi(= A000010) starts at a(4) = 14. (End)
