COMMENTS

Also the fixed point of the morphism 0->{0,1,2,3,4,5}, 1->{1,2,3,4,5,6}, 2->{2,3,4,5,6,7}, etc. - Robert G. Wilson v, Jul 27 2006

Sum of six consecutive terms is (15,21,27,33,39,45; 21,27,33,39,45,51; 27,33,39,45,51,57; and so on). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 02 2010

FORMULA

From Benoit Cloitre, Dec 19 2002: (Start)

a(0) = 0, a(6n+i) = a(n)+i for 0 <= i <= 5.

a(n) = n-5*(Sum_{k>0} floor(n/6^k)) = n-5*A054895(n). (End)

a(n) = A138530(n,6) for n > 5. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 26 2008

a(n) = Sum_{k>=0} A030567(n,k). - Philippe Deléham, Oct 21 2011

a(0) = 0; a(n) = a(n - 6^floor(log_6(n))) + 1. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Aug 23 2019

Sum_{n>=1} a(n)/(n*(n+1)) = 6*log(6)/5 (Shallit, 1984). - Amiram Eldar, Jun 03 2021

EXAMPLE

a(20)=3+2=5 because 20 is written as 32 base 6.

From Omar E. Pol, Feb 21 2010: (Start)

It appears that this can be written as a triangle (See the conjecture in the entry A000120):

0,

1,2,3,4,5,

1,2,3,4,5,6,2,3,4,5,6,7,3,4,5,6,7,8,4,5,6,7,8,9,5,6,7,8,9,10,

1,2,3,4,5,6,2,3,4,5,6,7,3,4,5,6,7,8,4,5,6,7,8,9,5,6,7,8,9,10,6,7,8,9,10,11,2...

where the rows converge to A173526.
