COMMENTS

Remark that initial values of form 64m+r, if r={3,11,19,27,35,43,51,55} provide firstsinklengths {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.
