 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS A cycle is called primitive if its elements are not a common multiple of the elements of another cycle. The 3x-k function T_k is defined by T_k(x) = x/2 if x is even, (3x-k)/2 if x is odd. For primitive cycles, GCD(k,6)=1. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..13. CROSSREFS k = A226682(n). Cf.
