 OFFSET 2,2 COMMENTS Each term can be represented in some base < n as a number < n multiplied by the base to some power. The terms given in the data section are a(2) = 1, a(3) = 2, a(4) = 54 = 2*3^3, a(5) = 13122 = 2*3^8, a(6) = 15258789062500 = 4*5^18, a(7) = 8158...4608 (186 digits) = 3*4^308. The other known terms (too large to write in the data section) are a(8) = 9532...8658 (3448 digits) = 2*3^7226, a(9) = a(10) = 9123...2500 (10344 digits) = 4*5^14798. Assuming a(11) exists, it is greater than 10^22500. LINKS EXAMPLE a(2) = 1 as 1 = 1_2, which has 1 = 2 - 1 as its leading digit. a(3) = 2 as 2 = 10_2 = 2_3, which have 1 = 2 - 1 and 2 = 3 - 1 as their leading digits. a(4) = 54 as 54 = 110110_2 = 2000_3 = 312_4, which have 1 = 2 - 1, 2 = 3 - 1 and 3 = 4 - 1 as their leading digits. a(5) = 13122 as 13122 = 11001101000010_2 = 200000000_3 = 3031002_4 = 404442_5, which have 1 = 2 - 1, 2 = 3 - 1, 3 = 4 - 1 and 4 = 5 - 1 as their leading digits. a(6) = 15258789062500 as 15258789062500 = 110000010110110101100111010011101100100_2 = 2000000201121020121212112011_3 = 3132002312230322131210_4 = 4000000000000000000_5 = 52241442501204004_6, which have 1 = 2 - 1, 2 = 3 - 1, 3 = 4 - 1, 4 = 5 - 1 and 5 = 6 - 1 as their leading digits. a(7) = 81582795696655426358720748526459181157825502882872103403434619627581986794626\ 90448473536034793921827874140100908746255557234586263455831973302268738547817\ 2585724832003163984432734404608 (Too large to include in the DATA section) PROG (Python) from math import floor, log def a(n): arr = [] p = 0 while True: for m in range(1, n): for b in range(2, max(3, n)): k = m*b**p if k in arr: continue arr.append(k) q = 1 for b in range(3, n+1): if floor(k/b**floor(log(k)/log(b))) != b-1: q = 0 break if q: return k p += 1 # Christoph B.
