EXAMPLE

Decimal 2 is 10 in binary, which is -1+i using complex base -1+i. Reversing 10 gives 01, or 1+0i.  Subtracting the reversed from the original results in -2+i, or 11111 using the complex base.  Its reversal is the same, so subtracting them gives 0.  Decimal 2 took 2 steps to reach 0, so a(2) = 2.
