 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS This sequence is given only for n <=5000 with max(s(n)) = 10. But we can find long sequences of primes, for example,length(s(12956))= 55, and corresponding to A006577(282984 + k), k = 0,1,...,54. We obtain an sequence of 55 consecutive primes numbers given in the example below. LINKS EXAMPLE a(1) = 3 represents the run (7, 2, 5). a(2) = 2 represents the run (3, 19). a(3)=2 represents the run (17, 17). a(7) = 4 represents the run (19, 19, 107, 107). a(12956) = 55 represents the run (83, 251, 83, 251, 127, 127, 127, 251, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 251, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 101, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 251, 251, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83, 83) MAPLE nn:=2000:T:=array(1..nn):for n from 1 to nn do: m:=n:for p from 0 to 1000 while (m<>1) do: if irem(m, 2)=1 then m:=3*m+1:else m:=m/2:fi:od:T[n]:=p:od:ii:=1:for i from 1 to nn do:if type(T[i], prime)=true and type(T[i+1], prime)=true then ii:=ii+1:else if ii<>1 then printf(`%d, `, ii):ii:=1:else fi:fi:od: CROSSREFS Cf.
