COMMENTS

This sequence is a variant of the Look and Say sequence A005150; here we use A321485 instead of A045918 to describe the previous term.

In contrast to A005150, this sequence is not monotonic.

The first digit 1 appear in a(1) = 1.

The first digit 2 appear in a(3) = 21.

The first digit 3 appear in a(12) = 3211.

The first digit 4 appear in a(288) = 2221134231131131211.

Will other digits also appear?

Is this sequence bounded?
