Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A317788 Lexicographically earliest infinite sequence of distinct positive terms such that for any n > 1, the binary representation of a(n) appears as a substring in the binary representation of Sum_{k=1..n-1} a(k). 1

COMMENTS

The sequence must start with a(1) = 2 in order to be infinite, and for any n > 1, a(n) <= Sum_{k=1..n-1} a(k).

This sequence has similarities with A160855.

EXAMPLE

The first terms, alongside the binary representations of a(n) and of Sum_{k=1..n-1} a(k), are:

  n  a(n)  bin(a(n))  bin(Sum_{k=1..n-1} a(k))
