COMMENTS

If the map "G -> Automorphism group of G" eventually reaches the trivial group, then the initial group IS a cyclic group.

From Jianing Song, Oct 12 2019: (Start)

These are numbers k such that every step of the iteration results in a cyclic group, i.e., numbers k such that k, phi(k), phi(phi(k)), phi(phi(phi(k))), ... (or equivalently, k, A258615(k), A258615(A258615(k)), ...) are all in A033948, phi = A000010.

Number of iterations to reach the trivial group:

k = 1: 0;

k = 2: 1;

k = 4: 2;

k = 5, 10: 3;

k = 11, 22: 4;

k = 23, 46: 5;

k = 47, 94: 6;

k = 3^i, 2*3^i, i > 0: i+1;

k = 2*3^i+1, 2*(2*3^i+1), i > 0, 2*3^i+1 is prime: i+2. (End)

FORMULA

Consists of the following numbers:

3^i and 2*3^i for all i >= 0,

if 2*3^i+1 is a prime, then also 2*3^i+1 and 2(2*3^i+1),

the exceptional entries 4, 5, 10, 11, 22, 23, 46, 47 and 94.

MAPLE

t1:={ 4, 5, 10, 11, 22, 23, 46, 47, 94}; for i from 0 to 30 do t1:={op(t1), 3^i, 2*3^i}; if isprime(2*3^i+1) then t1:={op(t1), 2*3^i+1, 2*(2*3^i+1)}; fi; od: convert(t1, list); sort(%);

PROG

(PARI) ok(k)={my(f=1, t); while(f&&k>1, f=if(k%2, isprimepower(k), k==2 || k==4 || (isprimepower(k/2, &t) && t>2)); k=eulerphi(k)); f}

{ for(n=1, 10^9, if(ok(n), print1(n, ", "))) } \\ Andrew Howroyd, Oct 12 2019
