COMMENTS

The iterated map is of the form of the maps f_c: z -> z^2 + c used to define the Mandelbrot set as those complex c for which the trajectory of 0 under f_c will never leave the ball of radius 2.

The largest real number in the Mandelbrot set is c = 1/4, with the trajectory of 0 going to 1/2 from the left.

The number of iterations N(epsilon) to reach z > 2 for c = 1/4 + epsilon is such that N(epsilon) ~ Pi/sqrt(epsilon), see the Numberphile video.

FORMULA

a(n) = A332061(2^n) ~ Pi*2^(n/2), asymptotically.

PROG

(PARI) apply( {A332062(n)=A332061(2^n)}, [0..35]) \\ may take about a second

(Python) A332062 = lambda n: A332061(2**n) # Warning: may give incorrect result for default (double) precision for n > 40. - Giovanni Resta, Mar 08 2020

CROSSREFS

Cf. A332061 (contains this as subsequence), A299415 (variant based on the same idea, with 1/10^n instead of 1/2^n).
