Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The analog of A065198 in base 2. Integers like 22, for which a palindrome is never reached (cf. A066059), are of course disregarded. A066145 gives the corresponding records.

EXAMPLE

Starting with 74, 11 'Reverse and Add' steps are needed to reach a palindrome; starting with n < 74, less (at most 5) steps are needed.

MATHEMATICA

limit = 10^4; (* Assumes that there is no palindrome if none is found before "limit" iterations *)

best = -1; Select[Range[0, 100000], (np = #; i = 0;

   While[np != IntegerReverse[np, 2] && i < limit,

    np = np + IntegerReverse[np, 2]; i++];

If[i >= limit, False, If[i > best, best = i; True]]) &] (* Robert Price, Oct 14 2019 *)
