Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

COMMENTS

Apart from initial term, same as A071647. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Nov 14 2006

Records occur when n is a Fibonacci number. For n>1, the smallest i such that the algorithm requires a(n) steps is A084242(n). The maximum number of steps a(n) is greater than k for n > A188224(k). - T. D. Noe, Mar 24 2011

Largest term in n-th row of A051010. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 27 2013
