COMMENTS

Number of occurrences of letter 2 in (n+1)-st Peano word.

a(n) = A020522(n)+A000225(n+1) = A083420(n)-A020522(n); in binary representation: a leading one followed by n zeros then by n ones; A000120(a(n))=n+1; A023416(a(n))=n; A070939(a(n))=2*n+1; 2*A020522(n)+1=A030101(a(n)). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 07 2006

The number of involutions in group G_n G_{n+1}=G_n(operation) D_8. For example, Q_8->1 involution; D_8->5 involutions - Roger L. Bagula, Aug 08 2007

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^(2*n-1)+2*a(n-1)+1 - Roger L. Bagula, Aug 08 2007

G.f.: 1/(1-4*x)+1/(1-2*x)-1/(1-x). E.g.f.: e^(4*x)+e^(2*x)-e^x. [From Mohammad K. Azarian, Jan 15 2009]

EXAMPLE

n=5: a(5)=4^5+2^5-1=1024+32-1=1055 -> '10000011111'.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_Integer?Positive] := f[n] = 2^(2*(n - 1) + 1)+2*f[n - 1] + 1 f[0] = 1; Table[f[n], {n, 0, 30}] - Roger L. Bagula, Aug 08 2007
