COMMENTS

0 first occurs for n=123, 1 first occurs for n=101, 2 first occurs for n=0, 3 first occurs for n=20, 4 first occurs for n=11, 5 first occurs for n=1. What is the least n such that a(n) > 5?  Jason Earls, Jun 03 2005 (Corrected by N. J. A. Sloane, May 12 2019)
Since each string has only finitely many preimages under this map, the sequence is unbounded. Compare A100961.  N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 18 2005
