%N For the Collatz (3x+1) iteration starting at k, the sequence lists the smallest k such that Fibonacci(n) belongs to the trajectory of k, or 0 if no such k exists.

%C The initial term k is not counted as an element of the trajectory.

%e a(1)=a(2)=2 because 1 = Fibonacci(1)=Fibonacci(2) is in the trajectory 2 -> 1;

%e a(3)=3 because 2 = Fibonacci(3) is in the trajectory 3 -> 10 -> 5 -> ... -> 2 ->1;

%e a(4)=6 because 7 = Fibonacci(4)=3 is in the trajectory 6 -> 3 -> 10 -> ... -> 1;

%e a(5)=3 because 5 = Fibonacci(5)=3 is in the trajectory 3 -> 10 -> 5 -> ... -> 1.

%e a(6)=3 because 8 = Fibonacci(6)=3 is in the trajectory 3 -> 10 -> 5 -> 16 -> 8 -> ... -> 1;

%e a(7)=7 because 13 = Fibonacci(7)=3 is in the trajectory 7 -> 22 -> 11 -> 34 -> 17 -> 52 -> 26 -> 13 -> ... -> 1.
