Agrees with A103127 for the first 511 terms, but then diverges. If a(n) is the present sequence and b(n) is A103127 we have:
.n...a(n)..b(n)..difference
.....................
509, 2033, 2033, 0
510, 2035, 2035, 0
511, 2037, 2037, 0
512, 4095, 2047, 2048
513, 4097, 2049, 2048
514, 4099, 2051, 2048
515, 4101, 2053, 2048
516, 4111, 2063, 2048
.....................
The sequence may be computed as follows (from Philippe Deléham, May 08 2005).
Start with 1, 1. Then add powers of 2 whose exponent n is not in A034797: 1, 3, 11, 2059, 2^2059 + 2059, ... This gives
Step 0: 1, 1
Step 1: add 2^2 = 4, getting 3, 5 and thus 1, 1, 3, 5.
Step 2: add 2^4 = 16, getting 15, 17, 19, 21 and thus 1, 1, 3, 5, 15, 17, 19, 21
Step 3: add 2^5 = 32, getting 31, 33, 35, 37, 47, 49, 51, 53 and thus 1, 1, 3, 5, 15, 17, 19, 21, 31, 33, 35, 37, 47, 49, 51, 53, etc.
The jump 2037 > 4095 for n = 510 > 511 is explained by the fact that we pass directly from 2^10 to 2^12 since 11 belongs to A034797.
The trajectories of 2 (A103747) and 7 (A103621) may surely be obtained in a similar way.
