COMMENTS

Suppose that a number n has base-b digits b(m), b(m-1), ..., b(0).  The base-b down-variation of n is the sum DV(n,b) of all d(i)-d(i-1) for which d(i) > d(i-1); the base-b up-variation of n is the sum UV(n,b) of all d(k-1)-d(k) for which d(k) < d(k-1).  The total base-b variation of n is the sum TV(n,b) = DV(n,b) + UV(n,b).  See A297330 for a guide to related sequences and partitions of the natural numbers:

EXAMPLE

2^20 in base 12:  4, 2, 6, 9, 9, 4; here, DV = 7 and UV = 7, so that a(2^20) = 14.

MATHEMATICA

b = 12; z = 120; t = Table[Total@Flatten@Map[Abs@Differences@# &,      Partition[IntegerDigits[n, b], 2, 1]], {n, z}] (* cf. Michael De Vlieger, e.g. A037834 *)
