FORMULA

Sum_{k=1..n} a(k))/n -> 1.57....

Multiplicative with a(2^e) = (e mod 3) + 1, a(p^e) = 1 for odd prime p. - Andrew Howroyd, Jul 31 2018

EXAMPLE

Concatenating the first 2 terms 1,2 -> 1,2,1,2 and changing 2->3 gives the first 4 terms: 1,2,1,3.

Concatenating those first 4 terms ->1,2,1,3,1,2,1,3 and changing 3->1 gives the first 8 terms: 1,2,1,3,1,2,1,1.

PROG

(PARI) seq(n)={my(v=[1, 2]); while(#v < n, v=concat(v, v); v[#v] = v[#v] % 3 + 1); vector(n, i, v[i])} \\ Andrew Howroyd, Jul 31 2018

(PARI) a(n) = valuation(n, 2) % 3 + 1; \\ Andrew Howroyd, Jul 31 2018

(MAGMA) [Valuation(n, 2) mod 3 + 1: n in [1..100]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 01 2018
