Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A232014 Number of iterations of A032445 ("position of n in Pi") until a value is reached for the second time, when starting with n, or -1 if no value is repeated. 3
16, 4, 3, 5, 6, 1 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



See A232013 for a variant based on A176341 instead of A032445.

Some loops: (5), (271070), (9292071), (40, 71), (2, 7, 14), (296, 1060, 13737, 133453, 646539, 294342, 141273). - Hans Havermann, Jul 26 2014

a(1)=4 since A032445(1)=2 (the first "1" occurs after the initial "3" as second digit in Pi), A032445(2)=7 (the first "2" occurs as 7th digit of Pi's decimal expansion), A032445(7)=14, A032445(14)=2, which "closes the loop" after 4 iterations. (The initial value does not need to be part of the loop.)


(PARI) A232014(n)={my(u=0); for(i=1, 9e9, u+=1<<n; bittest(u, n=A032445(n))&&return(i))}
