COMMENTS

A floretion-generated sequence relating to the Jacobsthal sequence A001045 as well as to A095342 (Number of elements in n-th string generated by a Kolakoski(5,1) rule starting with a(1)=1). (a(n)) may be seen as the result of a certain transform of the natural numbers (see program code).

FORMULA

G.f. (2x+1)/((1-2x)(x+1)^2); Superseeker results: a(n) + a(n+1) = A001045(n+3); a(n+1) - a(n) = A095342(n+1); a(n+2) - a(n+1) - a(n) = A053088(n+1) = A034299(n+1) - A034299(n); a(n) + 2a(n+1) + a(n+2) = 2^(n+3); a(n+2) - 2a(n+1) + a(n) = A053088(n+1) - A053088(n); a(n+2) - a(n) = A001045(n+4) - A001045(n+3) = A052953(n+3) - A052953(n+2) = A026644(n+2) - A026644(n+1);

a(n)=sum{k=0..n+2, (-1)^(n-k)*C(n+2, k)phi(phi(3^k))}; a(n)=sum{k=0..n+2, (-1)^(n-k)*C(n+2, k)(2*3^k/9+C(1, k)/3+4*C(0, k)/9)}; a(n)=sum{k=0..n+2, J(n-k+3)((-1)^(k+1)-2C(1, k)+4C(0, k))} where J(n)=A001045(n); a(n)=A113954(n+2). - Paul Barry, Nov 09 2005
