FORMULA

This is a concatenation S_0, S_1, S_2, ... where S_i = [b_0, b_1, ..., b_{k-1}], k=5*3^i, with b_0 = 1, b_{2j} = k+j, b_{2j+1} = (k+1)/2-j. E.g., S_0 = [1, 3, 6, 2, 7].

For any m>=1, for k such that 5*3^k+3>12m, a((5*3^k+3-12*m)/6)= m. For example, for k>=1, a((5*3^k-9)/6) = 1. - Benoit Cloitre, Oct 31 2002

PROG

a046901_list = scanl1 (\u v -> if u > v then u - v else u + v) [1..]
