 A001141 Describe the previous term! (method A - initial term is 5). 15

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Method A = 'frequency' followed by 'digit'-indication. A001155, A001140, A001141, A001143, A001145, A001151 and A001154 are all identical apart from the last digit of each term (the seed). This is because digits other than 1, 2 and 3 never arise elsewhere in the terms (other than at the end of each of them) of look-and-say sequences of this type (as is mentioned by Carmine Suriano in A006751). - Chayim Lowen, Jul 16 2015 a(n+1) - a(n) is divisible by 10^5 for n > 5. - Altug Alkan, Dec 04 2015 REFERENCES S.
