COMMENTS

In calculating terms of this sequence, use the convention that a(n)=0 for n<=0.

This sequence has exactly 3850 terms, since a(3850)=0 and computing a(3851) would refer to itself.

Superficially, this sequence behaves similarly to A278066. But, that sequence is infinite, but this sequence dies.
