Number of binary trees of height less than or equal to n. [Corrected by Orson R. L. Peters, Jan 03 2020]
The rightmost digits cycle (0,1,2,5,6,7,0,1,2,5,6,7,...). a(n) is prime for n = 2, 3, 5, ... a(n) is semiprime for n = 4, ...  Jonathan Vos Post, Jul 21 2005
Apart from the initial term, a subsequence of A008318.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Jan 17 2008
Partial sums of A001699.  Jonathan Vos Post, Feb 17 2010
Corresponds to the second and second last diagonals of A119687.  John M. Campbell, Jul 25 2011
This is a divisibility sequence.  Michael Somos, Jan 01 2013
Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 1.739940825174794649210636285335916041018367182486941... .  Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 30 2015
From Vladimir Vesic, Oct 03 2015: (Start)
Forming Herbrand's domains of formula: (∃x)(∀y)(∀z)(∃k)(P(x)∨Q(y)∧R(k))
where: x>a
k>f(y,z)
we get:
H0={a}
H1={a, f(a,a)}
H2={a, f(a,a), f(a,f(a,a)), f(f(a,a),a), f(f(a,a),f(a,a))}
...
The number of elements in each domain follows this sequence.
(End)
It is an open question whether or not this sequence satisfies Benford's law [BergerHill, 2017]  N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 07 2017
This is a strong divisibility sequence; see A329429.  Clark Kimberling, Nov 13 2019

FORMULA

a_n=B_{n1}(1) where B_n(x)=1+xB_{n1}(x)^2 is the generating function of trees of height <= n.
a(n) is asymptotic to c^(2^n) where c=1.2259024435287485386279474959130085213... (see A076949).  Benoit Cloitre, Nov 27 2002
c = b^(1/4) where b is the constant in Bottomley's formula in A004019. a(n) appears very asymptotic to c^(2^n)  Sum_{k>=1} A088674(k)/(2*c^(2^n))^(2*k1).  Gerald McGarvey, Nov 17 2007
a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} A001699(i).  Jonathan Vos Post, Feb 17 2010
a(2n) mod 2 = 0 ; a(2n+1) mod 2 = 1.  Altug Alkan, Oct 04 2015
a(n) + a(n1) = A213437(n).  Peter Bala, Feb 03 2017
0 = a(n)^2*(+a(n+1) + a(n+2)) + a(n+1)^2*(a(n+1)  a(n+2)  a(n+3)) + a(n+2)^3 for all n>=0.  Michael Somos, Feb 10 2017
a(n) = A091980(2^(n1)) for n > 0.  Alois P. Heinz, Jul 11 2019
