Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

FORMULA

For n > 1: a(n+1) = A045918(A004086(a(n))). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 02 2014

EXAMPLE

E.g. the term after 1011 is obtained by saying "two 1's, one 0, one 1", which gives 211011.

MATHEMATICA

a[0] = 0;

a[n_] := a[n] = Split[IntegerDigits[a[n-1]]] /. L_List /; IntegerQ[L[[1]]] :> {Length[L], L[[1]]} // Reverse // Flatten // FromDigits;

a /@ Range[0, 9] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Nov 26 2019 *)

PROG

(Haskell)

a022506 n = a022506_list !! n

a022506_list = 0 : 10 : iterate (a045918 . a004086) 1011
