COMMENTS

Contribution from Charles R Greathouse IV, Sep 17 2012: (Start)
a(n) = 0 for infinitely many n; such n have positive density in this sequence. Question: are such n of density 1?
A naive heuristic suggests that there are infinitely many n such that a(n) = 6 but only finitely many a(n) such that a(n) > 6. This suggests a weaker conjecture: this sequence is bounded. (end)
