Sequences of RADD type
Sequences of RADD type (for: "reverse digits, then add") are defined by a recurrence of the form where R = A004086 is digit reversal and Q is a fixed constant.

Introduction
Let T(S,Q) be the "RADD" sequence formed by starting with S, and then extending by the rule: reverse digits (i.e., apply function A004086) and add Q.
Leading zeros are omitted, of course.
This family was proposed by Luc Stevens (lms022(AT)yahoo.com) in an email to N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 05 2006.
David Applegate, Klaus Brockhaus and several other people have also contributed to this work.
The general behavior is that for given values of S and Q, either:
- T(S,Q) will after a finite number (i, say) of steps enter a cycle of finite length (c, say), or else
- T(S,Q) will never reach a cycle (in which case we set i = c = -1).
Example: S = Q = 1. This reaches a cycle of length 9 in one step:
1, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, 2,3,4,5,6,7,... (see A117230).
Example: S = 1, Q = 10. This never reaches a cycle:
1,11,21,22,32,33,43,44,54,55,65,66,76,77,87,88,98,99,109,911,129,931,149,... (see A117841)
Summary
S=1, Q=n: steps to reach cycle = A117816, length of cycle = A117817
S=n, Q=1: steps to reach cycle = A118511, records A118510 (cycle length c is always 9)
S=n, Q=2: steps to reach cycle = A118514, records A118515, A118516 (cycle length c = 81 for many small values of S)
S=n, Q=3: steps to reach cycle = A118522, records A118523, A118524 (cycle length c = 3 or 6 for many small values of S)
S=n, Q=4: steps to reach cycle = A117831, records A118473, A118474 (cycle length c = 54 for S=1..1014, see A117830, A117827, A117807)
