COMMENTS

Conjectured to be less than or equal to lcs(n) (see sequence A063437). The value of a(2^n) is that given in Stinson and van Rees and the value of a(2^n-1) is that given in Fu, Fu and Liao. This function gives an easy way to generate these two constructions.

FORMULA

a(2^n)=4^n-3^n; a(2^n+1)=4^n-3^n+1; a(2^n-1)=4^n-3^n-2^(n+1)+3

a(0)=a(1)=0, a(2n) = 3a(n)+n^2, a(2n+1) = a(n)+2a(n+1)+n^2-1. This was proved by Jeremy Dover. - Ralf Stephan, Dec 08 2004
