COMMENTS
The sum of reciprocals, Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n), converges. In general, the sum of the reciprocals of balanced numbers in base b converges for all b >= 4, and diverges for b = 2 or 3 (Papanicolaou, 2013). Grivaux (2015) gives 3 * Sum_{k>=1} (4*k)!/(k!^4 * 4^(4*k)) = 0.857... as an upper bound for this sum. The sum is converging slowly: the sums of the reciprocals of the terms with no more than 4*k digits in base 4, for k = 1, 2, ..., are 0.129.., 0.183..., 0.213..., 0.233..., 0.248..., 0.260..., 0.269..., 0.276..., 0.282..., 0.288..., ... . - Amiram Eldar, Feb 15 2024
