COMMENTS

A001468 is an infinite Fibonacci word with strings of 2's of length A001468(n) delimited by 1's. - Paul D. Hanna, Dec 17 2004

c(n):=a(n-1), n >= 1, is -1 if n is a Wythoff B-number from A001950, it is 0 if n=A(B(m)+1) for some m >= 1, with A(k):=A000201(k) (Wythoff A-numbers) and it is +1 if n=A(A(m)+1)=B(m)+1 for some m >= 0, with B(0):=0. - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 13 2006

This sequence is a symbolic sequence as discussed in the paper "Morphisms, Symbolic Sequences, and Their Standard Forms". It can be derived directly from the 2-block morphism induced by the morphism generating A001468. Since A001468 is the Fibonacci word A003849, but on the alphabet {2,1}, with an extra 1 in front, this 2-block morphism has 3-symbol Fibonacci as a fixed point: A270788.  The 2-blocks in A001468 are 12, 21, and 22, yielding the differences a(n) = 1, a(n) = -1, and a(n) = 0. In 3-symbol Fibonacci these correspond to the letters 2, 1, and 3. Expressing this coding with pi given by pi(1)=-1, pi(2)=1, pi(3)=0, we obtain the formula below. Wolfdieter Lang's Wythoff description of (a(n)) follows from the corresponding Wythoff description in A270788. - Michel Dekking, Dec 30 2019

FORMULA

abs(a(n)) = floor(f*ceiling(n/f)) - ceiling(f*floor(n/f)) where f=phi=(1+sqrt(5))/2; for n > 1, abs(a(n)) = A005713(n-1). - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 21 2003

G.f. equals the continued fraction: A(x) = [0;1, 1/x, 1/x, 1/x^2, 1/x^3, 1/x^5, 1/x^8, ..., 1/x^Fibonacci(n), ...]. - Paul D. Hanna, Dec 17 2004

a(n) = b(n) - b(n-1) with b(n):=A005614(n), n >= 1.

a(n) = pi(A270788(n)), n >= 1, where pi is the letter-to-letter map pi(1)=-1, pi(2)=1, pi(3)=0. - Michel Dekking, Dec 30 2019
