COMMENTS

The fixed points of A234742 are in A235035, thus the latter gives the zeros of this sequence.

It is not known whether the sequence is well-defined for all values. For example, does a(455) or a(1361) have a finite value? Cf. sequences A260735 and A260441.

FORMULA

If A234742(n) = n, then a(n) = 0, otherwise a(n) = 1 + a(A234742(n)).

Other identities:

a(A235035(n)) = 0.

a(2n) = a(n).

PROG

(PARI)

allocatemem((2^30));

A234742(n) = factorback(subst(lift(factor(Mod(1, 2)*Pol(binary(n)))), x, 2)); \\ After M. F. Hasler's Feb 18 2014 code.

A260712(n) = {my(prev=-1, i=-1); until((n==prev), prev = n; n = A234742(n); i++); return(i); };

for(n=1, 454, write("b260712.txt", n, " ", A260712(n)));

(Scheme, two alternatives, the first one using memoizing definec-macro)

(definec (A260712 n) (let ((next (A234742 n))) (if (= next n) 0 (+ 1 (A260712 next)))))

(define (A260712loop n) (let loop ((n (A234742 n)) (prev_n n) (i 0)) (if (= n prev_n) i (loop (A234742 n) n (+ 1 i)))))
