 OFFSET 1,3 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..69. M. Gilleland, Levenshtein Distance. [It has been suggested that this algorithm gives incorrect results sometimes. - N. J. A. Sloane] EXAMPLE a(9)=8 since we can transform 9 into 9^9=387420489 by 8 insertions, namely inserting 3,8,7,4,2,0,4 and 8 in front of 9. a(2)=1 since we can transform 2 into 2^2=4 by one substitution, namely 4 for 2.
