 A113918 Cardinality of Image^inf({ 2 }) under repeated base-n zero-split squaring. 2
 2, 18, 2, 3050, 34762, 3087549, 2 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS Define f_b(x) to be the set of base b numbers left after splitting x^2 at its zero digits and Image_b(S) = union_{x in S}{ { x } union f_b(S) }, then a(n) = | Image_n^inf({ 2 }) |. Conjecture: a(n) is finite for all n. LINKS Hugo van der Sanden, Perl and C implementations, Feb 03 2015 EXAMPLE f_10(29648) = { 4, 39, 879 } since 29648^2 = 879003904. a(8) = 2 since Image_8({ 2 }) = { 2, 4 } and f_8({ 2, 4 }) = { 2, 4 } and |{ 2, 4 }| is 2.
