COMMENTS

Or a(n) is in A145812 such that (2n+3a(n))/2 is in A145812 as well. Note also that a(n)+2A090569(n+1)=2n+3. [From Vladimir Shevelev, Oct 20 2008]

FORMULA

To get a(n), write 2n+1 as Sum b_j 2^j, then a(n) = 1 + Sum_{j odd} b_j 2^j.
Also, a(n) = 2*ceiling(n/2)+12*a(ceiling(n/2)).
Equals A004514 + 1.  Chris Groer (cgroer(AT)math.uga.edu), Nov 10, 2003


EXAMPLE

If n=4, 2n+1 = 9 = 1 + 0*2 + 0*2^2 + 1*2^3, so a(4) = 1 + 0*2 + 1*2^3 = 9.


MAPLE

a:=proc(n) local b: b:=convert(2*n+1, base, 2): 1+sum(b[2*j]*2^(2*j1), j=1..nops(b)/2) end: seq(a(n), n=0..100);


MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := a[n]= 2*Ceiling[n/2]+12a[Ceiling[n/2]]
