COMMENTS

There are a(1) odd terms, a(2) even terms, a(3) odd terms, a(4) even terms ...  Benoit Cloitre, May 26 2004

FORMULA

it seems that a(n) = 2n  a*n^b + o(n^b) where a and b are 2 suitable constants. b=0.4.... Does b=2phi where phi is the golden ratio?


EXAMPLE

Sequence begins: (1),(2,4),(5,7,9,11),(12,14,16,18,20),(21,.... since the number of elements in each run of odd or even integers is 1, 2, 4, 5, ... the sequence itself.
