Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Here the site swap pattern ...,2,16,2,4,2,8,2,4,2,0,2,4,2,8,2,4,2,16,2,... that spans over the Z (zero throw is at t=0) has been folded to N by picking values at t=0, t=1, t=-1, t=2, t=-2, etc. successively.

This pattern is shown in the figure 7 of Buhler and Graham paper and uses infinitely many balls, with each ball at step t thrown always to constant "height" 2^A001511[abs(t)] (no balls in hands at step t=0).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-x+x^2)/(1-x) + (1+x)*Sum(k>=1, 2^(k-1)*x^2^k/(1-x^2^k)). - Ralf Stephan, Apr 17 2003

MAPLE

[seq(TZ2(abs(N2Z(n))), n=1..120)];

N2Z := n -> ((-1)^n)*floor(n/2); Z2N := z -> 2*abs(z)+`if`((z < 1), 1, 0);

CROSSREFS

Bisection of this gives 2*A006519 or 2^A001511.

Sequence in context: A165207 A130501 A049116 * A060267 A214516 A238004
