COMMENTS

Let the decimal expansion of n be abcd...efg, say. Then a(n) has decimal expansion |a-b| |b-c| |c-d| ... |e-f| |f-g|. Leading zeros in a(n) are omitted.

From M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2019: (Start)

This sequence coincides with A080465 up to a(109) but is thereafter completely different.

It would make sense to define a(n) = 0 for n = 0, ..., 9.

Eric Angelini calls a(n) the "ghost" of the number n and considers iterations of n -> n +- a(n) depending on parity of a(n), cf. A329200 and A329201. (End)

EXAMPLE

a(371) = 46, for example.

a(110) = 01 = 1, while A080465(110) = 10 - 1 = 9. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2019

PROG

(PARI) apply( A040115(n)=fromdigits(abs((n=digits(n+!n))[^-1]-n[^1])), [10..199]) \\ Works for all n >= 0. - M. F. Hasler, Nov 09 2019

CROSSREFS

Cf. A037904, A040114, A040163, A040997.

Cf. A329200, A329201: iterations of n +- a(n).
