EXAMPLE

13->18->63->27->45->9->0->0, so a(13)=6.

MAPLE

Maple program from R. J. Mathar, Aug 20 2009

A151949 := proc(n)

local tup;

tup := sort(convert(n, base, 10)) ;

add( (op(i, tup)-op(-i, tup)) *10^(i-1), i=1..nops(tup)) :

end:

A151962 := proc(n)

local tra, x ;

tra := [n] ;

x := n ;

while true do

x := A151949(x) ;

if member(x, tra, 'l') then

RETURN(l-1) ;

fi;

tra := [op(tra), x] :

od:

end:

seq(A151962(n), n=0..120) ;
