COMMENTS

Number of different partial sums of 1+[1,*3]+[1,*3]+..., where [1,*3] means we can either add 1 or multiply by 3. E.g., a(6)=3 because we have 6=1+1+1+1+1+1=(1+1)*3=1*3+1+1+1. - Jon Perry, Jan 01 2004

Also number of partitions of n into distinct 3-smooth parts. E.g., a(10) = #{9+1, 8+2, 6+4, 6+3+1, 4+3+2+1} = #{9+1, 3+3+3+1, 3+3+1+1+1+1, 3+1+1+1+1+1+1+1, 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1} = 5. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 07 2005

Starts to differ from A008650 at a(81). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 31 2010

If m=ceiling(log_3(2k)) and n=(3^m+1)/2-k for k in the range (3^(m-1)+1)/2+(3^(m-2))<=k<=(3^m-1)/2, this sequence gives the number of "feasible" partitions described in the sequence A254296. For instance, the terms starting at 121st term of A254296 backwards to 68th term of A254296 provide the first 54 terms of this sequence. - Md. Towhidul Islam, Mar 01 2015

From Gary W. Adamson, Sep 03 2016: (Start) Let M =

  1, 0, 0, 0, 0,...

  1, 0, 0, 0, 0,...

  1, 0, 0, 0, 0,...

  1, 1, 0, 0, 0,...

  1, 1, 0, 0, 0,...

  1, 1, 0, 0, 0,...

  1, 1, 1, 0, 0,...

  1, 1, 1, 0, 0,...

..., where the leftmost column is all 1's, and all other columns are 1's shifted down thrice. Lim_{k=1..inf} M^k has a single nonzero column, which gives the sequence. (End)

FORMULA

a(n) = A005704([n/3]).

G.f.: Product_{k>=0} 1/(1-x^(3^k)). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 31 2010

If m = ceiling(log_3(2k)), define n = (3^m + 1)/2 - k for k in the range (3^(m-1)+1)/2 + (3^(m-2)) <= k <= (3^m-1)/2. Then, a(n) = Sum_{s=ceiling((k-1)/3)..(3^(m-1)-1)/2} a(s). This gives the first 2(3^(m-1))/3 terms. - Md. Towhidul Islam, Mar 01 2015

G.f.: 1 + Sum_{i>=0} x^(3^i) / Product_{j=0..i} (1 - x^(3^j)). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, May 07 2017

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 2 and the partitions are 3+1, 1+1+1+1; a(9) = 5 and the partitions are 9; 3+3+3; 3+3+1+1+1; 3+1+1+1+1+1+1; 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1.
