FORMULA

n^2*2^(-n)*binomial(n,n/2) <= a(n) <= n*sqrt(n).

Contribution from William P. Orrick, Mar 26 2009: (Start)

a(n/4) <= n(2m+1)+8[n/4(n/4-1)/(2(2m+1))], if 4m^2<=n/4<=4m^2+2m+1 or 4m^2+6m+3<=n/4<=4(m+1)^2,

a(n/4) <= 8[nm/4+1/2[n/4(n/4-1)/(2m)]-(n+4)/8]+n+4, if 4m^2+2m+1<n/4<=4m^2+4m+1,

a(n/4)<=8[nm/4+1/2[n/4(n/4-1)/(2(m+1))]+(n-4)/8]+n+4, if 4m^2+4m+1<=n/4<4m^2+6m+3.

[x] denotes the integer part. (See Kounias and Farmakis, 1988.) (End)
