COMMENTS

Periodic with period length 12.

It is believed that this is the longest trajectory that cycles (the others are {1}, {2,3}, {4,6,9,7,5}).

FORMULA

a(n+1) = A006368(a(n)).

From Colin Barker, Aug 16 2019: (Start)

G.f.: x*(44 + 66*x + 99*x^2 + 74*x^3 + 111*x^4 + 83*x^5 + 62*x^6 + 93*x^7 + 70*x^8 + 105*x^9 + 79*x^10 + 59*x^11) / ((1 - x)*(1 + x)*(1 - x + x^2)*(1 + x^2)*(1 + x + x^2)*(1 - x^2 + x^4)).

a(n) = a(n-12) for n>12.
