%N a(n) = d(d(d(d(n)))), the 4th iterate of number-of-divisors function with initial value of n.

%C The iterated d function rapidly converges to fixed point 2. For k=4, the first n for which a(n)>2 is 60.

%F a(n) = d(d(d(d(n)))).

%e E.g., n=96 and its successive iterates are 12,6,4,3 and 2. The 4th term is a(96)=3.
