COMMENTS

1999291987030606810 is the largest of the 126 presently known numbers that require exactly 261 steps to turn into a palindrome (see A281508). It is also the largest discovered "most delayed palindrome". The sequence reaches a 119digit palindrome after 261 steps (see bfile). The number was obtained empirically using computer algorithms and was not reported before.

FORMULA

a(n+1) = a(n) + rev(a(n)).
a(n) = A281507(n) for n>0.  R. J. Mathar, Jan 27 2017


EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1999291987030606810 + 186060307891929991 = 2185352294922536801.
