%N Successive generations of the variant of the Kolakoski sequence described in A042942.

%C For n >= 0, let f_1(n) be the number of 1's in a(n) (sequence begins: 0, 0, 2, 3, 4, 6, 11, 17, 24, ...) and f_2(n) be the number of 2's (sequence begins: 1, 2, 2, 3, 5, 8, 11, 16, 25, ...). Then there is a simple relation between f_1 and f_2, namely: f_1(n) = 1 - f_2(n) + f_2(n-1) + f_2(n-2) + ... + f_2(0). i.e. f_1(7) = 17 and 1 - f_2(7) + f_2(6) + ... + f_2(0) = 1 - 16 + 11 + 8 + 5 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 17. - _Benoit Cloitre_, Oct 11 2005
