**In his delightful little book[l] Kenichiro Kashara introduced the Pseudo-Smarandache function.
**

Delmition: For any n ~ 1, the value of the Pseudo-Smarandache function Zen) is the smallest integer m such that n evenly divides

m

L- k.

k=l

And it is well-known that the sum is equivalent to m(~+l) . Having been defmed only recently, many of the properties of this function remain to be discovered. In this short paper, we will tentatively explore the connections between Zen) and a subset of the integers known as the palindromic numbers. Definition: A number is said to be a palindrome if it reads the same forwards and backwards. Examples of palindromes are 121,34566543, 1111111111 There are some palindromic numbers n such that Zen) is also palindromic. For example, Z(909) =404 Z(2222) = 1111

**In this paper, we will not consider the trivial cases of the single digit numbers.
**

A simple computer program was used to search for values of n satisfying the above criteria The range of the search was, 10 ~ n ~ 10000. Of the 189 palindromic values of n within that range, 37, or slightly over 19%, satisfied the criteria. Furthennore it is sometimes possible to repeat the function again and get another palindrome. Z(909) = 404, Z(404) = 303 and once again, a computer program was run looking for values of n within the range

1 :s; n :s; 10,000. Of the 37 values found in the previous test, 9 or slightly over 24%, exhibited the above properties. Repeating the program again, looking for values of n such that n, Zen), Z(Z(n)) and Z(Z(Z(n))) are all palindromic, we find that of the 9 found in the previous test, 2 or roughly 22%, satisfy the new criteria. Definition: Let Zk(n) = Z(Z(Z( ... (n)))) where the Z function is executed k times. For notational purposes, let ZO(n) = n. Modifying the computer program to search for solutions for a value of n so that n and all iterations Zi(n) are palindromic for i = 1,2,3 and 4, we find that there are no solutions in the range 1 :s; n :s; 10,000. Given the percentages already encountered, this should not be a surprise. In fact, by expanding the search up through 100,000 one solution was found. Z(86868)

= 17271, Z(17271) = 2222, Z(2222) = 1111, Z(1111) = 505

Since Z(505) = 100, this is the largest such sequence in this region. Computer searches for larger such sequences can be more efficiently carried out by using only palindromic numbers for n. Unsolved Question: What is the largest value ofm so that for some n, Zk(n) is a palindrome for all k = 0, 1,2, ... ,m? Unsolved Question: Do the percentages discussed previously accurately represent the general case? Of course, an affirmative answer to the second question would mean that there is no largest value of m in the first. Conjecture: There is no largest value of m such that for some n, Zk(n) is a palindrome for all k = 0, 1,2,3, ... ,m. There are solid arguments in support of the truth of this conjecture. Palindromes tend to be divisible by palindromic numbers, so if we take n palindromic, many of the numbers that it divides would also be palindromic. And that palindrome is often the product of two numbers, one of which is a different palindrome. Numbers like the repunits, 11 ... 111 and those with only a small number of different digits, like 1001 and 505 appeared quite regularly in the computer search. Reference
