Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

FORMULA

After first two terms, a run of length 3*2^k 1's followed by a run of length 3*2^k 2's, for k = 0, 1, ...

a(n) = floor(log_2(8*(floor((n+3)/3))/3)) - floor(log_2(floor((n+3)/3))) for n>2; with a(1)=3 and a(2)=2. - Antonio G. Astudillo (afg_astudillo(AT)hotmail.com), Feb 22 2003

Also a(n) = A079882(A002264(n+3)) for n>2, where A002264=floor(n/3). - Antonio G. Astudillo (afg_astudillo(AT)hotmail.com), Feb 22 2003
