COMMENTS

Sometimes called friendly numbers, but this usage is deprecated.
Gilmer shows that the lower density of this sequence is < 0.1138 and the upper density is > 0.18577.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 21 2011
Corrected the upper and lower density inequalities in the comment above.  Nathan Fox, Mar 14 2013
Grundman defines the heights of the happy numbers by the number of iterations needed to reach the 1: 0, 5, 1, 2, 4, 3, 3, 2, 3, 4, 4, 2, 5, 3, 3, 2, 4, 4, 3, 1, ... (A090425(n)  1). E.g., for n=2 the height of 7 is 5 because it needs 5 iterations: 7 > 49 > 97 > 130 > 10 > 1.  R. J. Mathar, Jul 09 2017

FORMULA

From Ulrich Krug (leuchtfeuer37(AT)gmx.de), Apr 23 2009: (Start)
1) Every power 10^k is a member of the sequence.
2) If n is member the numbers obtained by placing zeros anywhere in n are members.
3) If n is member each permutation of digits of n gives another member.
4) If the repeated process of summing squared digits give a number which is already a member of sequence the starting number belongs to the sequence.
5) If n is a member the repunit consisting of n 1's is a member.
6) If n is a member delete any digit d, new number consisting of remaining digits of n and d^2 1's placed everywhere to n is a member.
7) It is conjectured that the sequence includes an infinite number of primes (see A035497).
8) For any starting number the repeated process of summing squared digits ends with 1 or gives an "8loop" which ends with (37,58,89,145,42,20,4,16,37) (End)


EXAMPLE

1 is OK. 2 > 4 > 16 > 37 > ... > 4, which repeats with period 8, so never reaches 1, so 2 (and 4) are unhappy.
A correspondent suggested that 98 is happy, but it is not. It enters a cycle 98 > 145 > 42 > 20 > 4 > 16 >37 >58 > 89 > 145 ...
