 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS These are the integers N which on application of the Collatz function yield the number 17. The Collatz function: if N is an odd number then (3N+1)/2^r yields a positive odd integer for some value of r (which in this case is 17). Numbers whose binary representation is 1011 together with n - 1 times 01. For example, a(4) = 725 = 1011010101 (2). - Omar E. Pol, Nov 24 2012 LINKS G. C.
