 A161593 Lengths of new periods in the RATS sequence (0 replacing infinity). 7
 0, 8, 2, 18, 2, 2, 2, 14 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The values A114611(j) for those starting values j of the RATS mapping x->A036839(x) which end in cycles that cannot be reached starting from any smaller j. Every integer >1 appears in this sequence. - Andrey Zabolotskiy, Jun 11 2017 LINKS Curtis Cooper, RATS. Curtis Cooper and Robert E. Kennedy, Base 10 RATS Cycles and Arbitrarily Long Base 10 RATS Cycles, Applications of Fibonacci numbers, Vol. 8, Kluwer Acad. Publ., Dordrecht, 1999, pages 83-93. Tanya Khovanova, Destinies of Numbers. EXAMPLE a(1)=A114611(0). a(2)=A114611(j=3)=8 with a cycle of length 8 shown in A066710. A114611(j=6)=8 does not contribute because the cycle is the same as reached from j=3. a(3)=A114611(9)=2 with a new cycle of length 2 shown in A066711. A114611(j=12)=8 does not contribute because the cycle is the same as reached from j=3. A114611(j=15)=8 does not contribute because 15->66->123 is the cycle as reached from j=3. A114611(j=18)=2 does not contribute because the cycle is the same as reached from j=9. A114611(j=21)=8 does not contribute because 21->33->66 reaches the same cycle as started from j=3. a(4)=A114611(j=29)=18. CROSSREFS Cf. A004000, A036839, A066711, A066710, A288537. Cf.
