A334493


a(n) is the "w" part of f(n) = Sum_{k>=0, d_k>0} (1+w)^(d_k1) * (3+w)^k where Sum_{k>=0} d_k * 7^k is the base 7 representation of n and w = 1/2 + sqrt(3)/2 is a primitive cube root of unity; sequence A334492 gives "real" parts.

COMMENTS

For any Eisenstein integer z = u + v*w (where u and v are integers), we call u the "real" part of z and v the "w" part of z.
This sequence has connections with A316658; here we work with Eisenstein integers, there with Gaussian integers.
It appears that f defines a bijection from the nonnegative integers to the Eisenstein integers.

EXAMPLE

The following diagram depicts f(n) for n = 0..13:
"w" axis
\
. . . . . . . .
\ 10 9

3 \ 2 11 7 8
\
._____._____._____._____._____._____._____. "real" axis
4 0 \ 1 12 13
\
. . . . . . . .
5 6 \
 f(9) = 4 + 2*w, hence a(9) = 2.
