EXAMPLE

The initial term is 10100. Using complex base 1+i, this is 42i. Reversing 10100 gives 00101, which is 12i. Adding both terms gives 34i, which is 11100001, the second term.


CROSSREFS

Cf A193239, number of steps needed to reach a palindrome with complex base 1+i. For that sequence, a(20)=1, showing that decimal 20 (binary 10100) seems to not reach a palindrome under the "Reverse and Add" iteration. Cf A193240, the trajectory of 110 (decimal 6) under the "Reverse and Add" iteration with complex base 1+i.
