COMMENTS

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

EXAMPLE

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.)
