Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

For a set S = {x, y} (x < y), let f(S) = {2x, y - x}, then a(n) is the smallest k > 0 such that f_k({1, 2n}) = {1, 2n} where f_k(S) denotes iteration for k times. E.g., for n = 3 we have: f_1({1, 6}) = f({1, 6}) = {2, 5}, f_2({1, 6}) = f({2, 5}) = {3, 4}, f_3({1, 6}) = f({3, 4}) = {1, 6}. - Jianing Song, Jan 27 2019
