COMMENTS

a(A235702(n)) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jan 15 2014

a(n) is the least nonnegative integer k such that the function iterates f: {1, 2, ...} -> {1, 2, ...}, n -> f(n) = A001175(n), satisfy f^[k+1](n) = f^[k](n), where f^[0] is the identity map f^[0](n) = n and f^[k+1] = f o f^[k]. See the Fulton and Morris link, where the function f is called pi and a(n)= omega(n) for n >= 2, and omega(24) should be 0. (see the Zumkeller remark on the Hannon and Morris reference) - Wolfdieter Lang, Jan 18 2015
