(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

%I

%S 16,4,3,5,6,1

%N 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.

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

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

%C See Hans Havermann table (in links) for primary unknown-length evolutions. - _Hans Havermann_, Aug 06 2014

%e 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.)
