A256985 Define a sequence {b(i), i >= 0} by b(i) = 1 for 0 <= i <= n, thereafter b(i+1) = (b(i)+b(i-n)) mod 10; consider the sequence of n-tuples [b(i-n+1), b(i-n+2),...,b(i)]; this repeats with period a(n). 1

EXAMPLE

For n=1 we get the Fibonacci sequence (starting 1,1,2,3,...), A000045, which read mod 10 repeats with period 60 (see A003893), so a(1)=60.  The full period in this case is:

[1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 3, 1, 4, 5, 9, 4, 3, 7, 0, 7, 7, 4, 1, 5, 6, 1, 7, 8, 5, 3, 8, 1, 9, 0, 9, 9, 8, 7, 5, 2, 7, 9, 6, 5, 1, 6, 7, 3, 0, 3, 3, 6, 9, 5, 4, 9, 3, 2, 5, 7, 2, 9, 1, 0].

PROG

(Python)

from itertools import accumulate # requires python 3.2 or higher

def A256985(n):

....ilist, k = [1]*(n+1), 1

....jlist = [d % 10 for d in accumulate(ilist)]

....jlist = [jlist[-1]]+ jlist[:-1]

....while ilist != jlist:

........k += 1

........jlist = [d % 10 for d in accumulate(jlist)]

........jlist = [jlist[-1]]+ jlist[:-1]

....return k # Chai Wah Wu, Apr 30 2015
