(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A005866 The coding-theoretic function A(n,8).
(Formerly M0226)
1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 4, 4, 8, 16, 32, 36, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Since A(n,7) = A(n+1,8), A(n,7) gives essentially the same sequence.

The next term, A(25,8), is known to be at least 4096 and at most 5421. - Moshe Milshtein, Dec 03 2018
