Math::NumSeq::KlarnerRado -- Klarner-Rado sequences
use Math::NumSeq::KlarnerRado; my $seq = Math::NumSeq::KlarnerRado->new; my ($i, $value) = $seq->next;
Start with 1, then for any k in the sequence then 2*k, 3*k+2 and 6*k+3 are in the sequence too. Thus 1,2,4,5,8,9,etc.
See "FUNCTIONS" in Math::NumSeq for behaviour common to all sequence classes.
$seq = Math::NumSeq::KlarnerRado->new ()
$seq = Math::NumSeq::KlarnerRado->new (start => $n)
Create and return a new sequence object.
start parameter can start the sequence from a value other than 1, which changes the sequence and in general bigger values thin out the sequence.
$bool = $seq->pred($value)
Return true if
$value occurs in the sequence.
Taking value mod 6 can say whether it's a descendant of one of the 2*k, 3*k+2, 6*k+3 forms, and thus give one or two reduced values to then check for being in the sequence.
value mod 6 descendant of reduce to 0 2k value/2 1 none 2 2k or 3k+2 value/2 and (value-2)/3 3 6k+3 (value-3)/6 4 2k value/2 5 3k+2 (value-2)/3
The reduction dividing out 2, 3 or 6 makes the test logarithmic, except when 2mod6 gives two reduced values to check.
