COMMENTS

Every term is an evil number (A001969) and every evil number occurs an infinite number of times in this sequence. Observe selfsimilarity in the graph of the sequence.  T. D. Noe, Jun 22 2007

FORMULA

If n=b_k b_{k1} ... b_0 in base 2, a(n) is number with binary expansion (b_k+b_{k1}) (b_{k1}+b_{k2}) ... (b_1+b_0) (b_0+b_{k}). Also n XOR (n rotate 1).


EXAMPLE

11=1011>1100 so a(11)=12.


MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := With[{bits = IntegerDigits[n, 2]}, FromDigits[ Thread[ BitXor[ bits, RotateLeft[bits]]], 2]]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 76}] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Aug 06 2012, from 2nd formula *)
