Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A273514 a(n) is the number of arithmetic progressions m < n < p (three numbers in arithmetic progression) such that m and p contain no 2's in their ternary representation. 4

COMMENTS

This is a recursive sequence that gives the number of times n is rejected from A005836, if n is the middle member of an arithmetic triple whose first and last terms are contained in A005836.

Also, a(n) is the number of unordered pairs of members of A005836 whose average (arithmetic mean) is n.

It appears that when A273513(n) and A262097(n) are coprime, a(n) = 2.

Local maxima occur at a(A125857(n)).

FORMULA

a(0) = 0, a(n) = a(3n) = a(3n+1); if a(n) = 0, a(9n + 2) = 2, otherwise a(9n + 2) = 4a(n); a(9n + 5) = a(9n + 6) = a(9n + 7) = a(9n + 8) = a(3n + 2).

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 2 because there are two arithmetic triples a < 2 < b such that a and b are members of A005836: 0, 2, 4 and 1, 2, 3.

PROG

(PARI) precCantor(n)=my(v=digits(n, 3)); for(i=1, #v, if(v[i]==2, for(j=i, #v, v[j]=1); break)); fromdigits(v, 2)

a(n)=if(n==0, return(0)); sum(i=0, precCantor(n-1), my(m=fromdigits(digits(i, 2), 3)); vecmax(digits(2*n-m, 3))<2) \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Jun 17 2016
