Suppose that a number 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). Guide to related sequences and partitions of the natural numbers:

For each b, let u = {n : UV(n,b) < DV(n,b)}, e = {n : UV(n,b) = DV(n,b)}, and d = {n : UV(n,b) > DV(n,b)}. The sets u,e,d partition the natural numbers. A guide to the matching sequences for u, e, d follows:

EXAMPLE

13684632 has DV = 8-4 + 6-3 + 3-2 = 8 and has UV = 3-1 + 6-3 + 8-6 + 6-4 = 9, so that a(13684632) = DV + UV = 17.

MAPLE

f:= proc(n) local L, i; L:= convert(n, base, 10);

add(abs(L[i+1]-L[i]), i=1..nops(L)-1) end proc:

map(f, [$1..100]); # Robert Israel, Feb 04 2018
