COMMENTS

From Amiram Eldar, Nov 28 2020: (Start)

The term "self numbers" was coined by Kaprekar (1959). The term "Colombian number" was coined by Recamán (1973) of Bogota, Colombia.

The asymptotic density of this sequence is approximately 0.0977778 (Guaraldo, 1978). (End)

FORMULA

A230093(a(n)) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 11 2013

The above defines this sequence: x is in this sequence iff A230093(x) = 0. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 08 2018

MAPLE

isA003052 := proc(n) local k ; for k from 0 to n do if k+A007953(k) = n then RETURN(false): fi; od: RETURN(true) ; end:

A003052 := proc(n) option remember; if n = 1 then 1; else for a from procname(n-1)+1 do if isA003052(a) then RETURN(a) ; fi; od; fi; end: # R. J. Mathar, Jul 27 2009

MATHEMATICA
