 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS In contrast to A262039, here we "round down" to the next smaller palindrome A261423(n) if it is at the same distance or closer, else we "round up" to the next larger palindrome A262038(n). LINKS EXAMPLE a(10) = 9 since we round down if the next larger palindrome (here 11) is at the same distance, both 9 and 11 are here at distance 1 from n = 10. a(16) = 11 since |16 - 11| = 5 is smaller than |16 - 22| = 6. a(17) = 22 since |17 - 22| = 5 is smaller than |17 - 11| = 6. a(27) = 22 since |22 - 27| = 5 is smaller than |27 - 33| = 6. a(28) = 33 since |33 - 28| = 5 is smaller than |22 - 28| = 6, and so on. a(100) = 99 because we round down in this case, where 99 and 101 both are at distance 1 from n = 100.
