 A134835 Let {b_n(m)} be a sequence defined by b_n(0)=0, b_n(m) = the largest prime dividing (b_n(m-1) +n). Then a(n) is the smallest positive integer such that b_n(m+a(n)) = b_n(m), for all integers m that are greater than some positive integer M. 1

%N Let {b_n(m)} be a sequence defined by b_n(0)=0, b_n(m) = the largest prime dividing (b_n(m-1) +n). Then a(n) is the smallest positive integer such that b_n(m+a(n)) = b_n(m), for all integers m that are greater than some positive integer M.

%e Sequence {b_8(m)} is 0,2,5,13,7,5,13,7,...(5,13,7) repeats. So a(8) = 3, the length of the cycle in {b_8(m)}.
