COMMENTS

Numbers n such that a(n) < n - 1 correspond to Brazilian numbers (A125134); conversely, positive numbers n such that a(n) >= n - 1 correspond to A220570. - Rémy Sigrist, Apr 04 2018

FORMULA

From Rémy Sigrist, Apr 04 2018: (Start)

a(n) <= n - 1 for any n >= 3.

a(2^n-1) = 2 for any n >= 0.

a(A048328(n)) <= 3 for any n >= 0.

a(A048329(n)) <= 4 for any n >= 0.

a(A048330(n)) <= 5 for any n >= 0.

a(A048331(n)) <= 6 for any n >= 0.

a(A048332(n)) <= 7 for any n >= 0.

a(A048333(n)) <= 8 for any n >= 0.

a(A048334(n)) <= 9 for any n >= 0.

a(A010785(n)) <= 10 for any n >= 0.

a(A048335(n)) <= 11 for any n >= 0.

a(A048336(n)) <= 12 for any n >= 0.

a(A048337(n)) <= 13 for any n >= 0.

a(A048338(n)) <= 14 for any n >= 0.

a(A048339(n)) <= 15 for any n >= 0.

a(A048340(n)) <= 16 for any n >= 0.

(End)

EXAMPLE

a(13) = 3 since 13 in base 3 is 111.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = for (b=2, oo, if (#Set(digits(n, b))<=1, return (b))) \\ Rémy Sigrist, Apr 04 2018
