 A259846 Number of steps to get from n to 1 by process of replacing with sum of divisors if the result is odd, or dividing by 2 if even. 0
 0, 1, 3, 2, 5, 4, 4, 3, 7, 6, 6, 5, 6, 5, 7, 4, 9, 8, 8, 7, 6, 7, 7, 6, 7, 7, 9, 6, 9, 8, 6, 5, 8, 10, 8, 9, 10, 9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 9, 8, 10, 8, 8, 7, 11, 8, 11, 8, 11, 10, 11, 7, 10, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7, 10, 6, 9, 9, 12, 11, 9, 9, 11, 10, 12, 11, 9, 10, 9, 9, 10, 9 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,3 LINKS EXAMPLE a(9)= 7 because 9 -> sigma(9)= 13 -> sigma(13)= 14 -> 7 -> sigma(7)= 8 -> 4 -> 2 -> 1, hence the trajectory {9 -> 13 -> 14 -> 7 -> 8 -> 4 -> 2 -> 1} with 7 iterations.
