A075477 Number of iteration that first becomes smaller than the initial value if Collatz-function (A006370) is iterated, starting with numbers of form 64n+15. Corresponds to selection of every 16th term from A074474. 1
12, 14, 12, 22, 12, 14, 12, 20, 12, 14, 12, 22, 12, 14, 12, 17, 12, 14, 12, 20, 12, 14, 12, 40, 12, 14, 12, 58, 12, 14, 12, 17, 12, 14, 12, 33, 12, 14, 12, 33, 12, 14, 12, 25, 12, 14, 12, 17, 12, 14, 12, 33, 12, 14, 12, 27, 12, 14, 12, 40, 12, 14, 12, 17, 12, 14, 12, 69, 12 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

Remark that initial values of form 64m+r, if r={3,11,19,27,35,43,51,55} provide first-sink-lengths {7,9,7,9,7,9,7,9} respectively; e.g. {64k+19,192k+58,96k+29,288k+88,144k+44,72k+22,36k+11} submerge first below initial value at the 7th term,36k+11<64k+19.

FORMULA

a(n)=A075473[64n+15], n=0, ..., 256

EXAMPLE

n=0: 64n+15=15,list={15,46,23,70,35,106,53,160,80,40,20,10..}, i.e. the 12th term is the first that <15, the initial value.
