COMMENTS

Minimal number of steps to get from 0 to n by (a) adding 1 or (b) multiplying by 2.
A stopping problem: begin with n and at each stage if even divide by 2 or if odd subtract 1. That is, iterate A029578 while nonzero.

FORMULA

a(0) = 0, a(2n+1) = a(2n) + 1 and a(2n) = a(n) + 1.
n>0 a(n)=nvaluation(A000254(n), 2)  Benoit Cloitre, Mar 09 2004


EXAMPLE

12 = 1100 in binary, so a(12)=2+41=5.


MATHEMATICA

f[ n_Integer ] := (c = 0; k = n; While[ k != 0, If[ EvenQ[ k ], k /= 2, k ]; c++ ]; c); Table[ f[ n ], {n, 0, 100} ]
f[n_] := Floor@ Log2@ n + DigitCount[n, 2, 1]; Array[f, 100] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jul 31 2012 *)


PROG

(PARI) a(n)=if(n<1, 0, nvaluation(n!*sum(i=1, n, 1/i), 2))
(PARI) a(n)=if(n<1, 0, 1+a(if(n%2, n1, n/2)))
(PARI) a(n)=n=binary(n); sum(i=1, #n, n[i])+#n1 \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 11 2012
