%N Base-5 representation of a(n) is the concatenation of the base-5 representations of 1, 2, ..., n, n-1, ..., 1.

%C Base-5 variant of A173426 (base 10) and A173427 (base 2). See A260853 - A260866 for variants in other bases b = 3, ..., 16.

%C The base 5 is not listed in A260343, because a(5) = A260851(5) = 3034961 is not prime and therefore not in A260852. See these sequences for more information.

%e a(0) = 0 is the result of the empty sum corresponding to 0 digits.

%e a(2) = 36 = (5+1)^2 = 5^2 + 2*5 + 1 = 121_4 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 1).

%e a(5) = 3034961 = 1234104321_5 is the concatenation of (1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 4, 3, 2, 1), where the middle "10" is the base-5 representation of 5.

%o (PARI) a(n,b=5)=sum(i=1,#n=concat(vector(n*2-1,k,digits(min(k,n*2-k),b))),n[i]*b^(#n-i))
