(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A066144 In base 2: n sets a new record for the number of 'Reverse and Add' steps needed to reach a palindrome starting with n. 5
0, 2, 11, 19, 20, 74, 398, 779, 1062, 2329, 4189, 4280, 11278, 19962, 98318, 135137, 1051360, 1592930 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The analog of A065198 in base 2. Integers like 22, for which a palindrome is never reached (cf. A066059), are of course disregarded. A066145 gives the corresponding records.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..17.

EXAMPLE

Starting with 74, 11 'Reverse and Add' steps are needed to reach a palindrome; starting with n < 74, less (at most 5) steps are needed.

MATHEMATICA

limit = 10^4; (* Assumes that there is no palindrome if none is found before "limit" iterations *)

best = -1; Select[Range[0, 100000], (np = #; i = 0;

   While[np != IntegerReverse[np, 2] && i < limit,

    np = np + IntegerReverse[np, 2]; i++];

If[i >= limit, False, If[i > best, best = i; True]]) &] (* Robert Price, Oct 14 2019 *)
