Table of n, a(n) for n=1..47.

FORMULA

Lim_{n->infinity} a(n)/n^2 = 3. - Jon E. Schoenfield, Mar 16 2021

EXAMPLE

Let t_(j+1) = sin(t_j) for j >= 0 with t_0 = Pi/2. Then t_9 = 0.50217... > 1/2, whereas t_10 = sin(t_9) = sin(0.50217...) = 0.48132... < 1/2, so a(2)=10.

MATHEMATICA

A092906[n_] := Block[{k = 1}, While[ N[ Nest[ Sin, Pi/2, k], 64] >= 1/n, k++ ]; k]; Table[ A092906[n], {n, 47}]
