(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A169857 Consider the EKG sequence (A064413) started at n instead of 2; a(n) = number of steps before sequence merges with A064413, or 0 if the two sequences never merge. 5
0, 44, 3, 44, 44, 44, 8, 44, 44, 48, 44, 44, 44, 18, 17, 58, 18, 51, 18, 44, 48, 62, 48, 44, 47, 44, 48, 82, 48, 90, 31, 48, 65, 44, 48, 101, 71, 47, 48, 116, 48, 129, 41, 39, 87, 135, 48, 65, 46, 65, 47, 148, 48, 104, 58, 71, 105, 168, 104, 187, 121, 69, 64, 69 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

2,2

COMMENTS

For the purpose of this sequence, ignore the initial 1 in A064413 and imagine that it begins with the 2.

The upper points appear to occur at primes, the points just below the upper points at twice primes.

Are there any zeros?
