 A190582 Generalized McCarthy function: a(n) = n - s if n > c; otherwise, a(n) = a(a(n+t)) with d = t - s > 0, with parameters t=15, s=9, c=21. 0

%N Generalized McCarthy function: a(n) = n - s if n > c; otherwise, a(n) = a(a(n+t)) with d = t - s > 0, with parameters t=15, s=9, c=21.

%C The parameters t=11, s=10, c=100 give the McCarthy 91-Function A103847.

%F The sequence begins with a(1) = d*floor((c+d-1)/d) + 1 - s;

%F if n <= c and c > d then a(n) = a(n-d);

%F if n <= c <= d then a(n) = a(1) + n - 1;

%F if n > c then a(n) = n - s.
