We are now in our 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS a(1)..a(28) verified for k < 2*10^5. For there to be other values that should be inserted into the Data would require log_2(3) to have some extremely good rational approximations, which seems extremely unlikely but hasn't been ruled out completely. - Robert Israel, Jan 04 2017 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..28. EXAMPLE From Robert Israel, Jan 04 2017: (Start) ceil(ilog_2(3^1) = 2 and 2^2 - 3^1 = 1. ceil(ilog_2(3^2) = 4 and 2^4 - 3^2 = 7. ceil(ilog_2(3^3) = 5 and 2^5 - 3^3 = 5. ceil(ilog_2(3^4) = 7 and 2^7 - 3^4 = 47. ceil(ilog_2(3^5) = 8 and 2^8 - 3^5 = 13. These are the first 5 values, so the list starts 1,5,7,13,47. (End) MAPLE Res:= NULL: for m from 1 to 2*10^5 do n:= ilog2(3^m)+1; x:= 2^n - 3^m; if x <= 10^13 then Res:= Res, x fi; od: sort([Res]); # Robert Israel, Jan 04 2017 MATHEMATICA Delete[Union[Flatten[Table[Table[If [ (2^n > 3^m) && Floor[2^n/3^m] < 2, Abs[2^n - 3^m], 0], {m, 1, n}], {n, 1, 100}], 1]], 1] CROSSREFS Sequence in context: A174874 A109904 A077781 * A102873 A356847 A342506 Adjacent sequences: A102869 A102870 A102871 * A102873 A102874 A102875 KEYWORD nonn AUTHOR Roger L.
