A073369 Let c(1)=n, e=2.71... and c(k+1)=floor(c(k)/e) if c(k) is even, c(k+1)=floor(e*c(k)) otherwise; sequence gives the smallest value a(n) such that c(a(n))=0. 0

FORMULA

Conjecture: sequence always exists and there is a constant C=2.9... such that sum(k=1, n, a(k)) is asymptotic to C*n*Log(n). Is this constant the same as those for the sequence involving Pi instead of e?

PROG

(PARI) P=exp(1); a(n)=if(n<0, 0, s=n; t=2; while(floor(s/P^(-1)^s)>0, s=floor(s/P^(-1)^s); t++); t)
