(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A230638 Smallest number m such that u + (sum of base-4 digits of u) = m has exactly n solutions. 19
0, 17, 16385, 16777234 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Indices of records in A230632: a(n) is the index of the first n in A230632.

The terms are a(1)=0, a(2)=4^2+1, a(3)=4^7+1, a(4)=4^12+17+1, a(5)=4^5368+17+1, a(6)=4^10924+16385+1, a(7)=4^5597880+16385+20. Note that a(7) breaks the pattern of the first six terms.

a(8) = 4^16777229 + 4^12 + 19.

For the leading power of 4 see A230637.
