Works Citing OEIS
In order to demonstrate some of the ways in which people have found the OEIS useful, we have assembled a list of papers and books that reference it. The list has been broken into 26 sub-sections, according to the first letter of the first author's last name.
Adding more references
- Additions to these pages are welcomed.
- If you see an article, book or web page that cites the OEIS, please add it to the appropriate page here.
- But if you add anything to these pages, please be very careful — remember that this is a scientific database. Spell authors' names, titles of papers, journal names, volume and page numbers, etc., carefully, and preserve the alphabetical ordering.
- Follow the format of the existing entries.
- If you are unclear about what to do, contact one of the Editors-in-Chief before proceeding.
- Works are arranged in alphabetical order by author's last name.
- Works with the same set of authors are arranged by date, starting with the oldest.
Want to help?
- If you would like to help, look for references to the OEIS that are not already listed in these pages. The following are good places to look:
- The arXiv
- Math Sci Net (needs a subscription)
- MATH Zentralblatt
- Google and its Ngrams lab.
- Google Scholar (initialized query)
- The Journal of Integer Sequences. This journal has many papers that could be added here. It has been checked up through (roughly) article #09.6.9, Vol. 12, 2009. Any later papers that reference the OEIS could be added here (and there will be a lot). If you do, please update this comment.
- Journals such as the following (some require a subscription, but many university libraries subscribe). These are the journals I check first when I have a chance to visit a university library.
- American Mathematical Monthly
- Canadian Mathematical Bulletin
- Discrete Mathematics
- The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics
- The European Journal of Combinatorics
- Fibonacci Quarterly
- Journal of Combinatorial Theory (Parts A and B)
- Journal of Number Theory
- Квант (Qvant)
- SIAM J. Discrete Mathematics
- Check the Current Periodicals shelves of your local university library!
Adding references or links from the OEIS to these articles
- Very often, an article that references the OEIS will say something like: "this is sequence A123456 in the OEIS". When you see this, please add a reference or link from A123456 to the article. This is, after all, one of the main purposes of the OEIS, to give pointers from a sequence to the scientific literature.
Referencing the OEIS

To reference a particular sequence, the usual citation is

About this page
- The list was maintained by N. J. A. Sloane until Dec 25 2010, when he partitioned it into 26 parts, converted them to MediaWiki format and moved them to the OEIS Wiki. At this time it contained 1700 references.
- Since then, the length of this list has grown as follows:
