%N Iterates of A234742, starting from value a(0) = 1361, with a(1) = A234742(a(0)), a(2) = A234742(a(1)), etc.
%C 1361 is the first term of A091209 that doesn't reach a fixed point at least for the first 2000 iterations of A234742. Cf. also A260716.
%C Note that 1361 = A048720(61,61).

%e 61 ("111101" in binary) = A014580(14), i.e., it encodes the fourteenth polynomial with coefficients 0 or 1 that is irreducible over GF(2), namely x^5 + x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + 1. When we multiply that polynomial by itself (in ring GF(2)[X]), we get x^10 + x^8 + x^6 + x^4 + 1, encoded by 1361 with binary representation "10101010001" [1361 = A048720(61,61)]. This is used as the initial value a(0) of this sequence. The next term is obtained by multiplying these two factors 61 and 61 as ordinary integers, which gives a(1) = 61*61 = 3721.
%e 3721 ("111010001001" in binary) in turn encodes polynomial x^11 + x^10 + x^9 + x^7 + x^3 + 1 which factorizes in ring GF(2)[X] as (x + 1)(x + 1)(x + 1)(x^8 + x^5 + x^3 + x + 1). Polynomial (x + 1) is encoded by 3 ("11" in binary) and (x^8 + x^5 + x^3 + x + 1) by 299 ("100101011" in binary). Multiplying 3*3*3*299 in ordinary way gives the next term of the sequence, a(2) = 8073.
