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
