FORMULA

Has period 34 with the only exceptions at n=0, 14, 16, 17, 31, 34 and 51.

PROG

(Haskell)

a002187 n = a002187_list !! n

a002187_list = tail g where

   g = 0 : 0 : [mex [xor (g !! (a + 1)) (g !! (n - a - 2)) |

                     a <- [-1 .. n - 2]] | n <- [1 ..]]

   xor 0 0 = 0

   xor x y = let ((q, r), (s, t)) = (divMod x 2, divMod y 2)

              in (if r == t then 0 else 1) + 2 * xor q s

   mex xs = head [x | x <- [0..], not (elem x xs)]
