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”).

FORMULA

Let a(n) = k, form m by Reversing the digits of k, Add m to k Then Sort the digits of the sum into increasing order to get a(n+1).

Periodic with period 8.

a(n+1) = A036839(a(n)). [Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 14 2012]

From Chai Wah Wu, Feb 07 2020: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-8) for n > 14.

G.f.: x*(-99*x^13 - 45*x^12 - 44523*x^11 - 12321*x^10 - 3483*x^9 - 1674*x^8 - 888*x^7 - 444*x^6 - 123*x^5 - 66*x^4 - 33*x^3 - 12*x^2 - 6*x - 3)/(x^8 - 1). (End)

EXAMPLE

668 -> 668 + 866 = 1534 -> 1345.
