(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A240824 a(n) = index of first nonexisting term of the meta-Fibonacci sequence {f(k) = k for k <= n; f(k)=f(k-f(k-3))+f(k-f(k-n))} if that sequence is only defined for finitely many terms, or 0 if that sequence is infinite. 1
21, 72, 35, 0, 47, 35, 37, 40, 91, 0, 143, 71, 92 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

a(6)=0 and a(12)=0 are only conjectures.

Except for the zero entries, this is equal to A240820(n)+1. See that entry for further information.
