 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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS a(n) gives string listing winning position for n stones. Sum of numbers in a(n) is equal to n. Using the chromatic (tet-12) scale, (if C=0, 12, 24...) all integers correspond to pitches C, C#, G#, A, Bb, B, a recursive pattern that evenly bisects the octave and avoids the tritone (IC6). - Nik Bizzell-Browning, Apr 27 2019 LINKS Nik Bizzell-Browning, Tchoukaillon solitaire sequence, Chromatic pitch table and example. D. M. Broline and _Daniel E. Loeb_, The combinatorics of Mancala-Type games: Ayo, Tchoukaillon and 1/Pi, J. Undergrad. Math. Applic., vol. 16 (1995), pp. 21-36. FORMULA To get the next term, if rightmost 0 is in position i, replace it by i and subtract 1 from all earlier entries. EXAMPLE For example, a(10) = 53111; rightmost 0 is in position 6, so get 653111 -> a(11) = 642000. CROSSREFS Cf. A002491, A007952, A028920, A028932, A028933.
