 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS From Peter Bala, March 12 2023: (Start) We conjecture that a(n+k) == a(n) (mod k) for all n and k. If true, then for each k, the sequence a(n) taken modulo k is a periodic sequence and the period divides k. For example, modulo 7 the sequence becomes [1, 2, 4, 1, 1, 4, 2, 1, 2, 4, 1, 1, 4, 2, ...], apparently a periodic sequence of period 7. More generally, let F(x) and G(x) denote power series with integer coefficients with F(0) = G(0) = 1. Define b(n) = n! * [x^n] exp(x*G(x))*F(x)^n. Then we conjecture that b(n+k) == b(n) (mod k) for all n and k. The present sequence is the case F(x) = 1/(1 - x), G(x) = 1. Cf. A361281.
