A072894 Let c(k) be defined as follows: c(1)=1, c(2)=n, c(k+2) = c(k+1)/2 + c(k)/2 if c(k+1) and c(k) have the same parity; c(k+2) = c(k+1)/2 + c(k)/2 + 1/2 otherwise; a(n) = limit_{ k -> infinity} c(k). 2

COMMENTS

Conjectures : (1) a(n+1)-a(n) = 0 or 1; (2) lim n ->infinity a(n)/n = 2/3; (3) 1/2 < (3a(n)-2n)/Log(n) <3/2 for any n > 1000. Does lim n -> infinity (3a(n)-2n)/Log(n) = 1 ?

LINKS

EXAMPLE

If n=5, c(3)=(1+5)/2=3, c(4)=(3+5)/2=4, c(5)=(4+3+1)/2=4, ..., hence a(5)=4.
