COMMENTS

This sequence and A000069 give the unique solution to the problem of splitting the nonnegative integers into two classes in such a way that sums of pairs of distinct elements from either class occur with the same multiplicities [Lambek and Moser]. Cf. A000028, A000379.
En français: les nombres païens.
a(n)A001285(n) = 2n1 has been verified for n=0..400.  John W. Layman
First differences give A036585. Observed by Franklin T. AdamsWatters, proved by Max Alekseyev, Aug 30 2006. This is equivalent to a(n) = 2*n + A010060(n). Proof: If the number of bits in n is odd then the last bit of a(n) is 1 and if the number of bits in n is even then the last bit of a(n) is 0. Hence the sequence of last bits is A010060. Therefore a(n) = 2*n + A010060(n).
Indices of zeros in the ThueMorse sequence A010060.  Tanya Khovanova, Feb 13 2009
A005590(a(n)) <= 0.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 11 2012
A106400(a(n)) = 1.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 29 2012
Conjecture, checked up to 10^6: a(n) is also the sequence of numbers k representable as k = ror(x) XOR rol(x) (for some integer x) where ror(x)=A038572(x) is x rotated one binary place to the right, rol(x)=A006257(x) is x rotated one binary place to the left, and XOR is the binary exclusiveor operator.  Alex Ratushnyak, May 14 2016
From Charlie Neder, Oct 07 2018: (Start)
Conjecture is true: ror(x) and rol(x) have an even number of 1 bits in total (= 2 * A000120(x)), and XOR preserves the parity of this total, so the resulting number must have an even number of 1 bits. An x can be constructed corresponding to a(n) like so:
If the number of bits in a(n) is even, add a leading 0 so a(n) is 2k+1 bits long.
Do an inverse shuffle on a(n), then "divide" by 11, rotate the result k bits to the right, and shuffle to get x. (End)

FORMULA

Note that 2n+1 is in the sequence iff 2n is not and so this sequence has asymptotic density 1/2.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Aug 23 2006
a(n) = (1/2) * (4n + 1  (1)^A000120(n)).  Ralf Stephan, Sep 14 2003
G.f.: Sum_{k>=0} (t(3+2t+3t^2)/(1t^2)^2) * Product_{l=0..k1} (1x^(2^l)), where t = x^2^k.  Ralf Stephan, Mar 25 2004
n such that A010060(n)=0.  Benoit Cloitre, Nov 15 2003
a(2*n+1) + a(2*n) = A017101(n) = 8*n+3. a(2*n+1)  a(2*n) gives the ThueMorse sequence (3, 1 version): 3, 1, 1, 3, 1, 3, 3, 1, 1, 3, .... A001969(n) + A000069(n) = A016813(n) = 4*n+1.  Philippe Deléham, Feb 04 2004
a(1) = 0; for n > 1: a(n) = 3*n3  a(n/2) if n even, a(n) = a((n+1)/2)+n1 if n odd.
Let b(n) = 1 if sum of digits of n is even, 1 if it is odd; then Shallit (1985) showed that Product_{n>=0} ((2n+1)/(2n+2))^b(n) = 1/sqrt(2).
a(n) = 2n + A010060(n).  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Aug 28 2006
