COMMENTS

Conjecture: For n>=3, each term a(n), when considered as a GF(2)[X]-polynomial, is divisible by GF(2)[X] -polynomial (x + 1) ^ A000225(n-1) (= A051179(n-2)). If this holds, then for n>=3, a(n) = A048720bi(A136386(n),A048723bi(3,A000225(n-1))) = A048720bi(A136386(n),A051179(n-2)).

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..A000225(n-1)} ([A000244(k)/(2^n)] mod 2) * 2^k, where [] stands for floor function.

EXAMPLE

When powers of 3 are written in binary (see A004656), under each other as:

000000000001 (1)

000000000011 (3)

000000001001 (9)

000000011011 (27)

000001010001 (81)

000011110011 (243)

001011011001 (729)

100010001011 (2187)

it can be seen that, starting from the column 2 from the right, the bits in the n-th column can be arranged in periods of 2^(n-1): 4, 8, ... This sequence is formed from those bits: 0011, reversed is 11100, which is binary for 12, thus a(3) = 12, 00011110, reversed is 011110000, which is binary for 120, thus a(4) = 120.

MAPLE

a(n) := sum( 'bit_n(3^i, n)*(2^i)', 'i'=0..(2^(n-1))-1);

bit_n := (x, n) -> `mod`(floor(x/(2^n)), 2);

CROSSREFS

a(n) = floor(A037096(n)/(2^(2^(n-1)))). See also A036284, A136386.

Sequence in context: A012564 A012442 A262204 * A337202 A299823 A222634

Adjacent sequences:  A037094 A037095 A037096 * A037098 A037099 A037100
