COMMENTS

The initial terms coincide with those of A003946, although the two sequences are eventually different.

Computed with MAGMA using commands similar to those used to compute A154638.

About the initial comment, first disagreement is at index 50 and the difference is 6.  - Vincenzo Librandi, Dec 09 2012
