%N a(n) is the least possible smallest period attainable by the action of a periodic sequence of binary operations <+>,<> (see A179382,A179480), beginning with 2n1<+>1 or 2n1<>1
%C The minorizing sequence for all sequences of type A179382,A179480 with arbitrary periodic rotation of the binary operations <+>,<>.
%e Let n=12, 2n1=23. Considering periodic sequence <+>,<>,<+>,<>,..., we have 23<+>1=3, 23<>3=5, 23<+>5=7, 23<>7=1, 23<+>1=3,... Thus a(12)<=4. It is not difficult to verify that a(12)>3. Thus a(12)=4.
