COMMENTS

Delete steps are not necessary;

a(n) = 0 iff n is prime: a(A000040(n))=0;

a(A171401(n)) = 1;

A171402 gives smallest numbers m such that a(m)=n: a(A171402(n))=n.

FORMULA

a(n) = BinaryLevenshteinDistance(n, A007918(n)).

EXAMPLE

n=14, A007918(14)=17: 14==1110->1100->1100->10001==17, 2 subst and 1 ins: a(14)=3;

n=15, A007918(15)=17: 15==1111->1011->1001->10001==17, 2 subst and 1 ins: a(15)=3;

n=16, A007918(16)=17: 16==10000->10001==17, 1 subst: a(16)=1, A171401(8)=16;

n=17, A007918(17)=17: no editing step: a(17)=0;

n=18, A007918(18)=19: 18==10010->10011==19, 1 subst: a(18)=1, A171401(9)=18.
