COMMENTS

Up to n = 10000, 1160 of the first 1228 odd primes appear as fixed points of a(n).

EXAMPLE

For n = 7, 3*T(7) = 63, and a(7) = 7 is a fixed point and the smallest divisor of 63 not yet in the sequence.

For n = 43, 3*T(43) = 2709, and a(43) = 43 is a fixed point and the smallest divisor of 2709 not yet in the sequence.
