a(n+1) = a(n) converted to base 8 from base 2 (written in base 10).
Number of disjunctive-normal forms of n-1 variables (either with x, or x-negated or without x). - Labos E. (labos(AT)ana.sote.hu), Jul 24 2003
a(n)*Psi(3^n,x), with the (monic) minimal polynomial Psi(3^n,x) of cos(2*Pi/3^n), becomes an integer polynomial with coefficient 1 of x^0.
E.g., 8*Psi(9,x)=8*(x^3 - (3/4)*x + 1/8) = 8*x^3 - 6*x + 1.
