Math::NumSeq::MephistoWaltz -- Mephisto waltz sequence
my $seq = Math::NumSeq::MephistoWaltz->new;
my ($i, $value) = $seq->next;
This sequence is the Mephisto waltz, being the count mod 2 of ternary digit 2s in i.
0,0,1, 0,0,1, 1,1,0, ... (A064990)
i=0 has no 2s so value=0, and likewise i=1 value=0. Then i=2 has one 2 so value=1.
The sequence can also be expressed as a morphism starting from single term 0 and repeatedly expanding
0 -> 0,0,1
1 -> 1,1,0
0,0,1, 0,0,1, 1,1,0,
0,0,1, 0,0,1, 1,1,0, 0,0,1, 0,0,1, 1,1,0, 1,1,0, 1,1,0, 0,0,1
| original | | copy | | 0<->1 flipped |
+-----------------+ +-----------------+ +-----------------+
The effect of the expansion is keep the first third the same, append a copy of it, and append an 0<->1 flipped copy of it .
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.
$seq = Math::NumSeq::MephistoWaltz->new ()
Create and return a new sequence object.
$value = $seq->ith($i)
Return the $i'th MephistoWaltz value, being the count mod 2 of the ternary digit 2s in $i.
$bool = $seq->pred($value)
Return true if $value occurs in the sequence, which simply means 0 or 1.
The calculation can also be made in a power-of-3 base like 9, 27, 81, etc instead of just 3. For example in base 9 digits 2, 5, 6, 7 have a one (mod 2) ternary 2. These base 9 digits correspond to the 1s in the initial sequence 0,0,1, 0,0,1, 1,1,0 shown above.
