COMMENTS

The base 4 is listed in A260343, which means that a(4) = A260851(4) = 27961 is prime and therefore in A260852. See these sequences for more information.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 0 is the result of the empty sum corresponding to 0 digits.
a(2) = 25 = 16 + 2*4 + 1 = 121_4 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 1).
a(4) = 27961 = 12310321_4 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 3, 10, 3, 2, 1), where the middle "10" is the base4 representation of 4.


PROG

(PARI) a(n, b=4)=sum(i=1, #n=concat(vector(n*21, k, digits(min(k, n*2k), b))), n[i]*b^(#ni))


CROSSREFS

Base4 variant of A173426 (base 10) and A173427 (base 2). See A260853  A260866 for variants in other bases b = 3, ..., 16.
