COMMENTS

The sequence was found by a computer search of all of the equal divisions of the octave from 1 to over 35163.
The numerical value of each term represents a musical scale based on an equal division of the octave. 12, for example, signifies the scale which is formed by dividing the octave into 12 equal parts.

FORMULA

Recurrence: the next term equals the current term plus one or more of the previous terms. a(n+1) = a(n) + a(nx)... + a(ny)... + a(nz)..., etc.


EXAMPLE

109 = 87 + the previous term 22. Again, 184417 = 121524 + the previous terms (54624 and 6691 and 1578).
