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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS First Bernoulli polynomial evaluated at x=n! and multiplied by 2. From Jaroslav Krizek, Jan 23 2010: (Start) a(0) = 1, for n >= 1: a(n) = numbers m for which there is one iteration {floor(r/k)} for k = n, n-1, n-2, ... 1 with property r mod k = k-1 starting at r = m. For n = 5: a(5) = 239; floor(239/5) = 47, 239 mod 5 = 4; floor( 47/4) = 11,  47 mod 4 = 3; floor( 11/3) =  3,  11 mod 3 = 2; floor(  3/2) =  1,   3 mod 2 = 1; floor(  1/1) =  1,   1 mod 1 = 0. (End) With offset 1, is the eigensequence of a triangle with the natural numbers (1, 2, 3,...) as the right border, (1, 1, 2, 3, 4,...) as the left border; and the rest zeros. - Gary W.
