Keywords
From OeisWiki
Keywords go in the Keywords field of an OEIS sequence entry. Keywords describe certain characteristics of a sequence and enable targeted searching.
Contents
Regular keywords (for permanent use)
Keyword | Description | A-number (example) |
---|---|---|
base | Sequence is dependent on base used. | A029976 |
bref | Sequence is too short to do any analysis with. | A003135 |
cofr | A continued fraction expansion of a number. | A001203 |
cons | A decimal expansion of a number (occasionally some other base). | A000796 |
core | A fundamental sequence. | A000012 |
dead | An erroneous or duplicated sequence (the table contains a number of incorrect sequences that have appeared in the literature, with pointers to the correct versions). | A185444 |
dumb | An unimportant sequence. | A085808 |
easy | It is easy to produce terms of this sequence. | A008592 |
eigen | An eigensequence: a fixed sequence for some transformation. | A000108 |
fini | A confirmed (if not by definition, then by a proof) finite sequence. | A056757 |
frac | Numerators or denominators of sequence of rational numbers. | A076512 |
full | The full sequence is given (implies that the sequence is finite). | A003173 |
hard | Next term is not known and may be hard to find. Would someone please extend this sequence? | A001220 |
hear | This sequence has a graph audio deemed to be particularly interesting and/or beautiful. | A000045 |
less | This is a less interesting sequence and is less likely to be the one you were looking for. | A144572 |
look | This sequence has a graph visual deemed to be particularly interesting and/or beautiful. | A099302 |
more | More terms are needed! Would someone please extend this sequence? | A005820 |
mult | Multiplicative: if . | A184997 |
nice | An exceptionally nice sequence. | A167408 |
nonn | A sequence of nonnegative numbers (more precisely, all the displayed terms are nonnegative; it is not excluded that later terms in the sequence become negative). | A000290 |
obsc | Obscure, better description needed. | A086267 |
sign | Sequence contains negative numbers. | A100700 |
tabf | An irregular (or funny-shaped) array of numbers made into a sequence by reading it row by row. | A027746 |
tabl | A regular array of numbers, such as Pascal's triangle, made into a sequence by reading it row by row. | A034851 |
unkn | The definition or context is not known; anyone who can find a definition, formula, or recurrence is urged to add it to the OEIS. | A058897 |
walk | Counts walks or self-avoiding paths. | A052179 |
word | Depends on words for the sequence in some language. | A001166 |
Administrative keywords (for temporary use)
Keyword | Description |
---|---|
allocated | The A-number has been allocated for a contributor, the entry is not ready to go live yet. |
changed | An older entry that has been modified within the last two weeks. |
new | New (added or modified within last two weeks, roughly). |
probation | Included on a provisional basis, but may be deleted later at the discretion of the editor. |
recycled | A proposed entry was rejected and now the A-number is available for another new entry. |
uned | Not edited. Sequences should be checked to see if: the sequence is worth including; the definition is sensible; the sequence is not already in the database; the English is correct; the different parts of the entry all have the correct prefixes: cross-references are in %Y lines, formulae in %F lines, etc.; any %H lines are correctly formatted (this is easy to get wrong); etc. The keyword "uned" indicates that this sequence was not edited, usually because of time pressure. Perhaps someone could edit this sequence. |
