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”).

FORMULA

a(n) = modlg(2^n, n) = floor(2^n / n^floor(n*logn(2))), where logn is the logarithm base n.

In the base-b representation of k, modlg(k,b) is the most significant digit: k = c0 + c1*b + c2*b^2 + ... + cn*b^n, cn = modlg(k,b), c0 = k mod b. - Alex Ratushnyak, Aug 30 2012

EXAMPLE

a(2) = floor(2^2 / 2^2) = 1,

a(3) = floor(2^3 / 3) = 2,

a(4)..a(9) are floor(2^n / n^2),

a(10)..a(15) are floor(2^n / n^3),

a(16)..a(22) are floor(2^n / n^4), and so on.
