Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

A self-inverse permutation of the integers.

It is not true in general that a(2n) = -2a(n) + 5n, a(2n+1) = -2a(n) + 5n + 2 as was originally conjectured.

Counterexamples: a(46) = 29; a(92) = 172; binary(172) = [1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0], but binary(-2*29+5*92) = binary(402) = [1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0]. a(45) = 30; a(91) = 167; binary(167) = [1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1], but -2*30+5*91+2=397 and binary(397) = [1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1] - Lambert Herrgesell (zero815(AT)googlemail.com), Jan 13 2007

a(n) = n if and only if n can be written as 3*Sum[d_i*4^k, 0 <= k < infinity], where d_i is either 0 or 1. - Jon Perry, Oct 06 2012

FORMULA

a(4n+k) = 4a(n) + a(k), 0 <= k <= 3. - Jon Perry, Oct 06 2012

EXAMPLE

a(31) = a(4*7+3) = 4*a(7) + a(3) = 4*11 + 3 = 47.
