 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS It appears that this sequence is infinite. For every record number of consecutive identical terms in A006577, the index of the first of those consecutive terms is a term of this sequence. This sequence is interesting because when A006577 is graphed on a scatter plot, it is immediately obvious that there are many runs of terms having the same value. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..32. EXAMPLE a(4)=98 since the length of the Collatz trajectory of each number from 98 through 102 is of length 25 and this is the fourth record length. From Jon E.
