COMMENTS

Question: Are there any terms larger than 1 after a(22) = 2? In other words, do all terms of A014566 contain zero somewhere in their decimal representation after A014566(22) = 341427877364219557396646723585? - Antti Karttunen, Oct 08 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = A031346(A014566(n)). - Michel Marcus, Oct 08 2017

EXAMPLE

For n=4 we have A014566(4) = Sierpinski number 257 --> 2*5*7 = 70 --> 7*0 = 0 thus persistence = 2, and a(4) = 2. - Edited by Antti Karttunen, Oct 08 2017

MAPLE

PROG

(Scheme)

;; The whole program follows:

(define (A131836 n) (A031346 (A014566 n)))

(define (A014566 n) (+ 1 (expt n n)))

(define (A031346 n) (let loop ((n n) (k 0)) (if (< n 10) k (loop (A007954 n) (+ 1 k)))))

(define (A007954 n) (if (zero? n) n (let loop ((n n) (m 1)) (if (zero? n) m (let ((d (modulo n 10))) (loop (/ (- n d) 10) (* d m)))))))
