COMMENTS

Suppose that n has baseb digits b(m), b(m1), ..., b(0). The baseb downvariation of n is the sum DV(n,b) of all d(i)d(i1) for which d(i) > d(i1); the baseb upvariation of n is the sum UV(n,b) of all d(k1)d(k) for which d(k) < d(k1). The total baseb variation of n is the sum TV(n,b) = DV(n,b) + UV(n,b). See the guide at A297330.

EXAMPLE

175 in base4: 2,2,3,3, having DV = 0, UV = 1, so that 175 is in the sequence.


MATHEMATICA

g[n_, b_] := Map[Total, GatherBy[Differences[IntegerDigits[n, b]], Sign]];
x[n_, b_] := Select[g[n, b], # < 0 &]; y[n_, b_] := Select[g[n, b], # > 0 &];
b = 4; z = 2000; p = Table[x[n, b], {n, 1, z}]; q = Table[y[n, b], {n, 1, z}];
w = Sign[Flatten[p /. {} > {0}] + Flatten[q /. {} > {0}]];
Take[Flatten[Position[w, 1]], 120] (* A297252 *)
Take[Flatten[Position[w, 0]], 120] (* A297253 *)
Take[Flatten[Position[w, 1]], 120] (* A297254 *)
