COMMENTS

If we drop the b >= 3 requirement, then this sequence becomes A007395 (the constant 2 sequence).

a(n) > 0 for n >= 3 since the base-(n-1) representation of n is 11.

a(n)=3 if and only if n is in A081606.

The only perfect k-th powers (k >= 2) that can appear in this sequence are 2^k with k a prime number.

The first n for which a(n)=7 is 560.

The first n for which a(n)=8 is 870899850.

The first n for which a(n)=10 is 871017138.

The first n for which a(n)=11 is 65473886952.

The first n for which a(n)=12 is 65473886954.
