COMMENTS

Previous name was: A006577(k), k = pure hailstone numbers from A061641.

Impure hailstone numbers are those which occur in the trajectories of smaller numbers. Thus 5 is impure since it occurs in the trajectory of 3.

FORMULA

a(n) = A006577(A061641(n)).

EXAMPLE

3 is the 3rd term of A061641, the trajectory of 3 has 7 terms: (10, 5, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1), so a(3) = 7.
