The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

The computation for n=16 took 11.5 days CPU time on a 500MHz Digital Alphastation. The asymptotic behavior lim n->infinity a(n)/mu^n=const is discussed in the MathWorld link. The Pfoertner link provides an illustration of the asymptotic behavior indicating that the connective constant mu is in the range [6.79,6.80]. - Hugo Pfoertner, Dec 14 2002
Computation of the new term a(17) took 16.5 days CPU time on a 1.5GHz Intel Itanium 2 processor. - Hugo Pfoertner, Oct 19 2004
