 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS For n <= 3*2^25, sequence of numbers n such that a(n+1) = a(n) = a(n-1) = a(n-2) = a(n-3) contains numbers of the form 3*2^k for all 2 <= k <= 25. In fact, for n <= 3*2^25 there are only two exceptional terms that are not of the form 3*2^k: 49042 and 49043. Observation of the form of 3*2^k in the sequence that we define above is interesting since form of 3*2^k has an importance for short scale generational behavior of Hofstadter's Q-sequence.
