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.

COMMENTS

floor(a(n)/10^(n-1)) is the juxtaposition of a de Bruijn sequence. [This is because the first and last n-1 digits of a(n) are always identical - see my link for a general proof. - Jianing Song, Oct 29 2019]

FORMULA

a(n) = A007088(A166315(n))*10^(n-2) + 10^(2^n+n-2) for n > 1. Proof: by the property mentioned in the comment section, write a(n) = (d_1)*10^(2^n+n-2) + (d_2)*10^(2^n+n-3) + ... + (d_2^n)*10^(n-1) + (d_1)*10^(n-2) + (d_2)*10^(n-3) + ... + (d_(n-1))*10^0, d_i = 0 or 1, then d_1 = 1, (d_2)*2^(2^n-1) + (d_3)*2^(2^n-2) + ... + (d_2^n)*2^1 + (d_1)*2^0 >= A166315(n), and d_2, d_3, ..., d_(n-1) >= 0. The equalities can hold simultaneously (when written as a 2^n-digit binary number, A166315(n) begins with n 0's and ends with a 1), which gives the formula. - Jianing Song, Oct 28 2019

a(n) = A004086(floor(A327233(n)/10^(n-2)))*10^(n-2) for n > 1. - Jinyuan Wang, Nov 02 2019

EXAMPLE

For n = 2, the set of all n consecutive digits of 10011 is {10, 00, 01, 11} and the set of 0 to 2^n-1 in binary is {00, 01, 10, 11}.

For n = 3, the set of all n consecutive digits of 1000101110 is {100, 000, 001, 010, 101, 011, 111, 110} and the set of 0 to 2^n-1 in binary is {000, 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110, 111}.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = {my(v=vector(2^n), w=vector(2^n)); k=2^(2^n+n-2)-1; for(i=1, 2^n, v[i]=fromdigits(binary(i-1))); while(Set(w)!=v, u=binary(k++); w[1]=fromdigits(u)\10^(2^n-1); for(i=2, 2^n, w[i]=u[i+n-1]+10*(w[i-1]%10^(n-1)))); fromdigits(u); }

CROSSREFS

Cf. A007088, A166315 (earliest binary de Bruijn sequences), A166316 (largest binary de Bruijn sequences), A327233 (largest k).
