COMMENTS

David J. Seal found that the number 255987 is fixed by the map described in A230625 (or equally A287874), so a(255987) = -1. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 15 2017

I also observe that the numbers 1007 and 1269 are mapped to each other by that map, as are the numbers 1503 and 3751 (see the B file submitted by Chai Wah Wu for A230625). So a(1007) = a(1269) = a(1503) = a(3751) = -1. - David J. Seal, Jun 16 2017

a(217) = a(255) = a(446) = a(558) = a(717) = a(735) = a(775) = a(945) = a(958) = -1 since the trajectory either converges to (1007,1269) or to (1503,3751). - Chai Wah Wu, Jun 16 2017

See A287878 for the trajectory of 234. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 17 2017

See A288894 for the trajectory of 3932. - Sean A. Irvine, Jun 18 2017

The latest information seems to be that for numbers less than 12388, all trajectories either end at a fixed point or in a cycle of length 2. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 27 2017

Changed the "escape" value from 0 to -1 to be consistent with A195264. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 27 2017
