# Questions tagged [oeis]

The acronym OEIS stands for the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences, a well-known database of sequences of integers. It can be used for questions where this database is (or might be) relevant, mainly questions about particular sequences of integers. This tag is typically used in combination with other tags to make the scope of the question more precise; common examples of such tags include the top-level tags co.combinatorics and nt.number-theory.

### Recurrence for the viabin numbers of the self-conjugate integer partitions

Let $a(n)$ be A290254, the viabin numbers of the self-conjugate integer partitions, also defined as $\left\lbrace 0 \right\rbrace$ union fixed points of A059894, self-inverse permutation defined as ...

### Binary recurrence from general recurrence

We have general recurrence for A243499 (which is product of parts of integer partitions as enumerated in the table A125106) $$a(n)=(1+b(n))a(t(n)), a(0)=1$$ where $b(n)$ is A023416 (which is number of ...

### David Applegate conjecture at OEIS sequence A237424 [closed]

The OEIS sequence is the sequence of the numbers of the form $$(10^a+10^b+1)/3$$ were $a$ and $b$ are nonnegative integers Here is the link for the sequence https://oeis.org/A237424 This sequence has ...

### Why does this "factorial sequence" appear in the OEIS?

For a reciprocal of a polynomial, $f = \frac{1}{p}$, we (presumably) may construct a sequence $(c_n)_{n=0}^\infty$ such that for all $N\ge 0$ $$f(k)k! = \sum_{n=0}^{N-1} c_n(k-n)! + O((k-N)!).$$ I ...

### Generalized Thomas Ordowski conjecture at OEIS sequence A002326

OEIS is the online encyclopedia of integer sequences, Here is the link to the sequence $A002326$: https://oeis.org/A002326 For $n\geq 0$, the $n$th term in the sequence is defined as: $a(n)$ equals ...

### Why can one compute the sum of divisors of $n$ without factoring $n$?

Question links to paper which states: $$\sigma(n)= \frac{6}{n^2(n-1)}\sum_{k=1}^{n-1}(3n^2-10k^2)\sigma(k)\sigma(n-k) \qquad (1)$$ where $\sigma(n)$ is the sum of divisors of $n$. Another similar ...

### What OEIS sequence is this?

I've come up with an idea of an integer sequence. It can be formulated (perhaps a bit loosely) as follows: For n points N(n) is the number of configurations where each point either lies on some ...

### My research paper involves computing additional terms of an existing OEIS sequence. Should I first amend the sequence or publish the results?

In the course of my research I computed terms of an existing OEIS sequence that are currently unknown. Having prepared my paper for publication, I am now faced with a (small) dilemma: Do I first ...

### Conjecture by Ekedahl on Weyl groups and Abelian varieties

A conjecture was made on p.14 in "Cycle Classes of the E-O Stratification on the Moduli of Abelian Varieties" by Torsten Ekedahl (late, excellent contributor to MO) and Gerard Van Der Geer concerning ...

### Positions in the Wythoff array

Suppose that $x$ and $y$ are positive integers. How can the position of $x+y$ in the Wythoff array (A035513) be predicted from the positions of $x$ and $y$? Background. The Wythoff array begins with ...

### On the iterated automorphism groups of the cyclic groups

Let $C_n$ be the cyclic group of order $n$. Its automorphism group $Aut(C_n)$ is a group of order $\varphi(n)$ isomorphic to $(\mathbb{Z}/n\mathbb{Z})^{\times}$ the multiplicative group of integer ...

### Сlosed formula for $(g\partial)^n$

The objective is to obtain a closed formula for: $$\boxed{A(n)=\big(g(z)\,\partial_z\big)^n,\qquad n=1,2,\dots}$$ where $g(z)$ is smooth in $z$ and $\partial_z$ is a derivative with respect to $z$. ...

### Are there infinitely many insipid numbers?

A number $n$ is called insipid if the groups having a core-free maximal subgroup of index $n$ are exactly $A_n$ and $S_n$. There is an OEIS enter for these numbers: A102842. There are exactly $486$ ...

Let call $n$ a sporadic number if the set of groups $G \neq A_n,S_n$ having a core-free maximal subgroup of index $n$ is non-empty and contains only sporadic simple groups. By GAP, the set of all the ...

### Simple-looking sequences $A$ and $B$ defined by a complementary equation

Define $A=(a_n)$ and $B=(b_n)$ by $b_0=1$ and $$a_n=b_n+b_{2n}$$ for $n \geq 0$, where $A$ and $B$ are increasing and every positive integer occurs exactly once in $A$ or $B$. Can someone prove ...
