COMMENTS

Below, w* denotes the reversal of a word w, and "sequence" and "word" are interchangeable. An infinite word is palindromic if it has infinitely many initial subwords w such that w = w*.

Many infinite palindromic words (a(1),a(2),...) are determined by an initial word w and a midword sequence (m(1),m(2),...) of palindromes, as follows: for given w of length k, take w(1) = w = (a(1),a(2),...,a(k)). Form the palindrome w(2) = w(1)m(1)w(1)* by concatenating w(1), m(1), and w(1)*. Continue inductively; i.e., w(n+1) = w(n)m(n)w(n)* for all n >= 1. See A260390 for a guide to related sequences.

EXAMPLE

w(1) = 100, the initial word.

w(2) = 1001001 ( = 100+1+001, where + = concatenation)

w(3) = w(2)+0+w(2)*

w(4) = w(3)+1+w(3)*

MATHEMATICA

u[1] = {1, 0, 0}; m[1] = {u[1][[1]]};

u[n_] := u[n] = Join[u[n - 1], m[n - 1], Reverse[u[n - 1]]]

m[k_] := {u[k][[k]]}

v = u[6]  (* A260444 *)
