 A098115 a(n) is the length of iteration-trajectory when cototient-function[=A051953] is applied to the half of n-th primorial number[=A002110(n)/2]. 0

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Initial values are here odd numbers. Comparing with the case of primorial-iv [=A098202], the lengths are here significantly smaller. Cause of this is unknown, albeit informally "understood": lack of powers of 2 in lists because parity is invariant during this iteration. See also lists for A098200 and A098201. LINKS FORMULA a[n]=A053475[A002110(n)/2] EXAMPLE n=7: list={255255,163095,77815,16663,895,183,63,27,9,3,1,0},a=12, while comparable length for 510510 is A098202=43.
