 A257796 Smallest value of the loop in which n ends, when iterating the map (A257588) which sends a number to absolute value of first digit squared minus second digit squared plus third digit squared etc. 6

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Six loops are possible. There are three loops of one. 21.0% of the numbers end up as zero. Some numbers end up as a happy number (=1); density is 4.2%. Some numbers end up as 48; density is 4.8%. More numbers end up in a loop of two (16 and 35); density is 25.4%. Most numbers end up in a loop of five (9, 81, 63, 27, 45, 9); density is 44.6%. LINKS Pieter Post, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..999 EXAMPLE a(17)=48 because abs(1^2 - 7^2) = 48 => abs(4^2 - 8^2) = 48. a(34)=0 because abs(3^2 - 4^2) = 7 => 7^2 = 49 => abs(4^2 - 9^2) = 65 => abs(6^2 - 5^2) = 11 => abs(1^2 - 1^2) = 0.
