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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A204540 Numbers n with property that their basins (as defined in A204539) equal 1. 2


%S 2,3,4,6,14,1760,39046

%N Numbers n with property that their basins (as defined in A204539) equal 1.

%C Only seven such numbers are known. Referring back to A204539, we cannot be certain that these are the only numbers with the property basin(n) = 1, but there are no others for n less than 12,000,000. Furthermore the average value of basin(n) is approximately equal to n/3 for large values of n, which makes it extremely unlikely that another one will ever be found.

%C For unknown reasons, all integers >5 with basin equal to 1 or 2 are even. See A185001 for the list of known numbers with basin = 2.

%t (* First run the program for A204539 to define basin *) Select[Range[1000], basin[#] == 1 &]] (* _Alonso del Arte_, Jan 19 2012 *)
