COMMENTS

This sequence gives all start numbers a(n) (sorted increasingly) of Collatz sequences of length 7 following the pattern ud^5 with u (for `up'), mapping an odd number m to 3*m+1, and d (for `down'), mapping an even number m to m/2, requiring that the sequence ends in an odd number. The last entry of this Collatz sequence is 6*n - 1.

This appears in Example 2.1. for x = 5 in the M. Trümper paper given as a link below.

FORMULA

O.g.f.: x*(53+11*x)/(1-x)^2.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 53 because the Collatz sequence of length 7 following the pattern uddddd, ending in an odd number is [53, 160, 80, 40, 20, 10, 5]. The end number is 6*1 - 1 = 5.
