 A046043 Autobiographical numbers (or curious numbers): list of numbers m = x_0 x_1 x_2 ... x_{b-1} (written in base b) such that x_i is the number of "digits" in m that are equal to i, for all i=0,...,b-1. 10
 1210, 2020, 21200, 3211000, 42101000, 521001000, 6210001000 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Note that the base b is the total number of "digits" in m. Since the numbers are written without spaces between the digits x_i, we must take b <= 10. There are no such numbers for b<=3 or b=6, two such numbers for b=4, and exactly one such number for b=5 and each b>=7. - David Callan, Feb 17 2017 The proof of completeness is based on: x_0 > 0; x_i > 2 only if i = 0; for i > 2, x_i = 1 if i = x_0, x_i = 0 otherwise.
