COMMENTS

A variant of A061641, which is the main entry for this sequence.
The inclusion of 2 is apparently due to a nonstandard definition of a Collatz sequence; A177729 assumes that the Collatz sequence ends when it reaches 1, whereas the standard definition includes the periodic 1,4,2,... from that point. The inclusion of 0 in A061641 is a bit odd, but is not actually wrong. One usually looks only at positive integers for Collatz sequences.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, May 14 2010
a(n) = A192719(n,1), see also A220263.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Jan 03 2013
