Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

a(6) = 784. a(11) = 76050. a(15) = 467856. a(18) = 401408.

a(n) is the least k such that A095955(k) = n. a(9) = 22011456. a(12) = 14531344. No more terms < 10^8. - David Wasserman, May 14 2007

a(5) <= 6634509269055173050761216000, see A095955. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 22 2013

a(5) <= 278832689509653754675200. a(21) <= 723197776. All numbers < 254731536 reach a cycle of length 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 11, 12, 15 or 18. 254731536 does not reach a cycle after 20000 iterations. - Donovan Johnson, Dec 06 2013
