Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

This sequence is not periodic because log(4)/log(10) is an irrational number. - T. D. Noe, Jan 25 2007

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

FORMULA

a(n)=Number_of_digits{4^(n+1)}-Number_of digits{4^(n)} with n>=0 and where "Number_of digits" is a hypothetical function giving the number of digits of the argument.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=1 because 4^(1+1)=16 (two digits) 4^1=4 (one digit) and the difference is 1.

a(2)=0 because 4^(2+1)=64 (two digits) 4^(2)=16 (two digits) and the difference is 0.

MAPLE

P:=proc(n) local i, j, k, w, old; k:=4; for i from 1 by 1 to n do j:=k^i; w:=0; while j>0 do w:=w+1; j:=trunc(j/10); od; if i>1 then print(w-old); old:=w; else old:=w; fi; od; end: P(1000);

# alternative:

H:= [seq(ilog10(4^i), i=1..1001)]:

H[2..-1]-H[1..-2]; # Robert Israel, Jul 12 2018

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = #digits(4^(n+1)) - #digits(4^n); \\ Michel Marcus, Jul 12 2018
