COMMENTS

From Steve Witham (sw(AT)tiac.net), Oct 13 2009: (Start)
Starting the sequence (and its index) at 1 (as in A082008) instead of 0 (as in A082007) seems more natural. This was conceived as a way to arrange a heapsort in memory to improve locality of reference. The classic Williams/Floyd heapsort also works a little more naturally when the origin is 1.
This sequence is a permutation of the integers >= 1. (End)
Moreover, the first 2^2^n  1 terms are a permutation of the first 2^2^n  1 positive integers.  Ivan Neretin, Mar 12 2017

FORMULA

May be defined recursively by:
def A082008( n ):
if n == 1: return 1
y = 2 ** int( log( n, 2 ) )
yc = 2 ** 2 ** int( log( log( y, 2 ), 2 ) )
yr = y / yc
return (yc1) * int( (ny) / yr + 1 ) + A082008( yr + n % yr ) (from Steve Witham, Oct 14 2009)


MATHEMATICA

w = {{1}}; Do[k = 2^Floor@Log2[n  1]; AppendTo[w, Flatten@Table[w[[n  k]] + (2^k  1) i, {i, 2^k}]], {n, 2, 7}]; a = Flatten@w (* Ivan Neretin, Mar 12 2017 *)

..if n == 1: return 1
..
..y = 2 ** int( log( n, 2 ) )
..yc = 2 ** 2 ** int( log( log( y, 2 ), 2 ) )
..yr = y / yc
..return (yc1) * int( (ny) / yr + 1 ) + A082008( yr + n % yr )
