%N Numbers whose base-12 digits have greater down-variation than up-variation; see Comments.

%C Suppose that n has base-b digits b(m), b(m-1), ..., b(0). The base-b down-variation of n is the sum DV(n,b) of all d(i)-d(i-1) for which d(i) > d(i-1); the base-b up-variation of n is the sum UV(n,b) of all d(k-1)-d(k) for which d(k) < d(k-1). The total base-b variation of n is the sum TV(n,b) = DV(n,b) + UV(n,b). See the guide at A297330.

%C Differs from A296749 first at 168 = 120_12, which is in not in A296749 because it has the same number of rises and falls, but in here because DV(168,12) =2 > UV(168,12) =1. - _R. J. Mathar_, Jan 23 2018

%e 134 in base-12: 11,2, having DV = 9, UV = 0, so that 134 is in the sequence.

%t g[n_, b_] := Map[Total, GatherBy[Differences[IntegerDigits[n, b]], Sign]];

%t x[n_, b_] := Select[g[n, b], # < 0 &]; y[n_, b_] := Select[g[n, b], # > 0 &];

%t b = 12; z = 2000; p = Table[x[n, b], {n, 1, z}]; q = Table[y[n, b], {n, 1, z}];

%t w = Sign[Flatten[p /. {} -> {0}] + Flatten[q /. {} -> {0}]];

%t Take[Flatten[Position[w, -1]], 120] (* A297276 *)

%t Take[Flatten[Position[w, 0]], 120] (* A297277 *)

%t Take[Flatten[Position[w, 1]], 120] (* A297278 *)
