%N For x=n, iterate the map x > Product_{k is a prime dividing x} (k + (multiplicity of k)), a(n) is the number of steps to see a repeated term for the first time.
%C It appears that all n end in one of the orbits (6,12,16) or (20,24) or one the fixed points 4, 90, 120, verified to n=10^8.

%e For n=2: 2=2^1 > (2+1)=3=3^1 > (3+1)=4=2^2 > (2+2)=4; 4 is repeated so a(2)=3.
%e For n=12: 12=2^2*3^1 > (2+2)*(3+1)=16=2^4 > (2+4)=6=2^1*3^1 > (2+1)*(3+1)=12; 12 is repeated so a(12)=3.
