COMMENTS

The differs from the first version (in A323286) in that now n can be reached from n (by using the empty string).

This slight modification of the definition makes the analysis simpler.

The number of numbers that can be reached from n in one step is A323287(n)+1.

The minimal number of steps to reach n starting at 1 is still given by A323454.
