 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The iterated d function rapidly converges to fixed point 2. In the 5th iterated d-sequence the first term different from the fixed point 2 appears at n=5040. The 6th and further iterated sequences have very long initial segment of 2's. In the 6th one the first non-stationary term is a(293318625600)=3. In such sequences any large value occurs infinite many times and constructible. Differs from A007395 for n=1, 5040, 7920, 8400, 9360, 10080, 10800 etc. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 20 2008 LINKS Charles R Greathouse IV, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 EXAMPLE E.g., n=96 and its successive iterates are 12,6,4,3 and 2. The 5th term is a(96)=2 is stationary(fixed).
