%N Prime reached in A230626, or -1 if no prime is reached.

%C _David J. Seal_ found that the number 255987 is fixed by the map described in A230625 (or equally A287874), so a(255987) = -1. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Jun 15 2017

%C I also observe that the numbers 1007 and 1269 are mapped to each other by that map, as are the numbers 1503 and 3751 (see the B file submitted by _Chai Wah Wu_ for A230625). So a(1007) = a(1269) = a(1503) = a(3751) = -1. - _David J. Seal_, Jun 16 2017

%C a(217) = a(255) = a(446) = a(558) = a(717) = a(735) = a(775) = a(945) = a(958) = -1 since the trajectory either converges to (1007,1269) or to (1503,3751). - _Chai Wah Wu_, Jun 16 2017

%C See A287878 for the trajectory of 234. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Jun 17 2017

%C See A288894 for the trajectory of 3932. - _Sean A. Irvine_, Jun 18 2017

%C The latest information seems to be that for numbers less than 12388, all trajectories either end at a fixed point or in a cycle of length 2. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Jul 27 2017
