COMMENTS

This sequence depends on the initial two values and the definition of outlier: whether to use the sample or population standard deviation and how many standard deviations above the mean.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..47.

FORMULA

a(n) = int(m(n-1) + 3s(n-1) + 1), where m(n-1) is the arithmetic mean of the first n-1 terms and s(n-1) is the sample standard deviation of the first n-1 terms

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 12 because the mean of the first 4 terms is 3.5 and the sample standard deviation is 2.65, so the lower limit to any outlier is 11.45 and the next higher integer is 12.
