COMMENTS

See A087061 for definition. Note that 0+x = x and 9*x = x for all x.

This differs from A003983 at a(46): min(1,10)=1, while lunar product 10*1 = 10.

We have now changed the name from "dismal arithmetic" to "lunar arithmetic" - the old name was too depressing. - N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 06 2014
