a(n) = index of first nonexisting term of the metaFibonacci sequence {f(1) = ... = f(n) = 1; f(k)=f(kf(k1))+f(kf(kn))} if that sequence is only defined for finitely many terms, or 0 if that sequence is infinite.

COMMENTS

a(2)=0 is only a conjecture (see A005185), whereas a(4)=0 is a theorem of Balamohan et al. (2007).
Except for the two zero entries, this is equal to A134680(n)+1. See that entry for further information.
