COMMENTS

Conjecture: Every cycle with the same value of k (k>1) has the same proportion of odd and even elements. Thus if n>1 then A226626(n)/A226625(n) has the same value for each m where A226628(n) <= m < A226628(n+1).

EXAMPLE

The irregular array starts:
(k=1) 1, 3, 11;
(k=11) 4;
(k=17) 6, 6;
(k=19) 17;
a(4)=4 is the length of the 3x11 cycle {19,23,29,38} associated with A226623(4)=19.


CROSSREFS

The cycle associated with a(n) has A226626(n) odd elements of which A226624(n) is the largest.
