COMMENTS

Base-8 variant of A173426 (base 10) and A173427 (base 2). See A260853 - A260866 for variants in other bases.

The base 8 is not listed in A260343, because a(8) = A260851(8) = 45954960939217 is not prime and therefore not in A260852. See these sequences for more information.

FORMULA

For n < b = 8, we have a(n) = A_b(n) = R(b,n)^2, where R(b,n) = (b^n-1)/(b-1) are the base-b repunits.

EXAMPLE

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

a(2) = 81 = (8+1)^2 = 8^2 + 2*8 + 1 = 121_8, the concatenation of (1, 2, 1).

a(9) = 12345671011107654321_8, concatenation of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 10, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1), where the middle "10, 11, 10" are the base-8 representations of 8, 9, 8.

PROG

(PARI) a(n, b=8)=sum(i=1, #n=concat(vector(n*2-1, k, digits(min(k, n*2-k), b))), n[i]*b^(#n-i))
