COMMENTS

Number of integers k which require exactly n steps to reach 0, when starting from k and iterating the map: x > x  (number of runs in binary representation of x).

FORMULA

a(n) = A255053(n+1)  A255053(n).
a(n) = 1 + A255055(n)  A255053(n).
Other identities. For all n >= 0:
a(n) = 1 + A255123(n) + A255124(n).


EXAMPLE

0 is the only number reached from 0 in zero steps, thus a(0) = 1.
Both 1 and 2, in binary '1' and '10', when the number of runs (A005811) is subtracted from them, result zero: 11 = 22 = 0, and these are only such numbers where the zero is reached with one step, thus a(1) = 2.
For 3, 4 and 5, in binary '11', '100' and '101', subtracting the number of runs results 2 in all cases, thus two steps are requires to reach zero, and as there are no other such cases, a(2) = 3.
For 6, in binary '110', subtracting A005811 repeatedly gives > 62 = 4, 42 = 2, 22 = 0, three steps in total, and as 6 is the only such number requiring three steps, a(3) = 1.


PROG

(Scheme, with Antti Karttunen's IntSeqlibrary, three versions):
(define (A255054 n) ( (A255053 (1+ n)) (A255053 n)))
(define (A255054 n) (+ 1 ( (A255055 n) (A255053 n))))
(define (A255054 n) (+ (A255123 n) (A255124 n) 1))
