 A075480 Number of iteration that first becomes smaller than the initial value if Collatz function (A006370) is iterated, starting with numbers of the form 64n + 39. 2

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Initial values of the 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. LINKS Nathaniel Johnston, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000 FORMULA a(n) = A074473(64n+39). EXAMPLE n=0: 64n + 39 = 39, Collatz trajectory = {39, 118, 59, 178, 89, 268, 134, 67, 202, 101, 304, 152, 76, 38, 19, 58, ....}, i.e., the 14th term = 38 is the first that is less than 39, the initial value, so a(0)=14.
