COMMENTS

This sequence is based on the cylinder flow equation that is in most fluid dynamics texts. I used a n*log(n) circulation term to slow down the progression that gets very large very fast after n=36.

I take this sequence as an analog of the inverse of the rate of flow in fluid layers around a cylinder and the fluid comes to a near stop when n gets greater than 36. A similar complex plane Julia to this is also possible using the iterative k for the n in this equation and leaving out the absolute value and floor functions.
