Another interesting project:
Look at the graph of Recaman. There are clear visual "arcs".
Let r = Recaman. I am guessing you could define an arc sequence as follows:
a(n) =
0, if n = 0
a(n-1)+1 if r(n) = r(n-1)+n <=> r(n) > r(n-1)
a(n-1)-1 if r(n) = r(n-1)-n <=> r(n) < r(n-1)
Then a(n) tells you which Recaman arc r(n) lies on.
It might be interesting to explore the arc properties, their starts and
ends and maxima, etc.
