COMMENTS

This sequence is defined by a(n) = 0 for n <= 0; a(1) = 9, a(2) = 20, a(3) = 5, a(4) = 5, a(5) = 20, a(6) = 9, a(7) = 20, a(8) = 5, a(9) = 5, a(10) = 20, a(11) = 9, a(12) = 5, a(13) = 10, a(14) = 10, a(15) = 20; thereafter a(n) = a(na(n1)) + a(na(n2)).
Similar to Hofstadter's Qsequence A005185 but with different starting values.
Much like the Hofstadter Qsequence A005185, it is not known if this sequence is defined for all positive n.
This sequence has a similar structure to A272160. That sequence consists of five interleaved sequences: four chaotic sequences and a sequence of all 4's. This sequence also consists of five interleaved sequences: four chaotic sequences and a sequence of all 9's.
If the 20's in the initial condition are each replaced by larger numbers, the general structure of this sequence does not change.
