COMMENTS

See A232014 for a variant based on A032445 instead of A176341.

Some loops: (1), (711939213), (0, 32, 15, 3), (19, 37, 46), (40, 70, 96, 180, 3664, 24717, 15492, 84198, 65489, 3725, 16974, 41702, 3788, 5757, 1958, 14609, 62892, 44745, 9385, 169).

See Hans Havermann table (in links) for primary unknown-length evolutions.

EXAMPLE

a(0)=4 since A176341(0)=32 (position of the first "0" in Pi's digits), A176341(32)=15 (position of the first "32" in Pi's digits), A176341(15)=3 (position of the first "15" in Pi's digits), A176341(3)=0 (position of the first "3" in Pi's digits); here we find the "0" again after 4 iterations, thus a(0)=4.

a(1)=1 since A176341(1)=1 (the first "1" occurs at position 1 in Pi's digits), which already "closes the loop" after 1 iteration.

a(2)=12 because the iterations yield 2 > 6 > 7 > 13 > 110 > 174 > 155 > 314 > 0 > 32 > 15 > 3 > 0, here we re-enter the loop (of length 4) after 12 iterations.
