COMMENTS
If n is a palindrome, R(n) = n and n-R(n) = 0, thus a(n) = 0. So, for a given length of the sequence, the number of zeros is equal to the number of palindromic n's. For example, in the interval {0, 100} there are 18 zeros corresponding to the 18 palindromic n's: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,22,33,44,55,66,77,88 and 99.
From the 11th term, the sequence can be seen as a series of subsequences separated by a zero. Between two zeros, the terms start by increasing, then go through a maximum and finally decrease as shown for example by the zero separated subsets: [3,8,14,20,27,34,41,48,15,3]; [2,5,10,15,21,27,33,23,8,2]; [2,4,8,12,17,23,30,14,5,2].
The above described characteristics of the sequence give well-structured patterns to nice graphs.

EXAMPLE
For n = 1, R(n) = 1, thus a(1) = ceiling((1-1)^2/(1+1)) = 0.
For n = 10, R(n) = 1, thus a(10) = ceiling((10-1)^2/(10+1)) = 8.
For n = 22, R(n) = 22, thus a(22) = ceiling((22-22)^2/(22+22)) = 0.
