COMMENTS

The number of 2's among the first N terms are: count(10^3) = 381, count (10^4) = 4137, count(10^5) = 42638, count(10^6) = 437423, count(10^7) = 4448503. - M. F. Hasler, Apr 27 2016

In terms of vectors a = (p(n),p(n+1)) mod 4, as considered in the preprint arxiv:1603.03720, the 2's group together the cases a = (1,1) and (3,3) and 0's cumulate cases (1,3) and (3,1). Assuming that the two sub-cases of each case have roughly the same probabilities, the above counts (i.e., percentage of 44.5% : 55.5% at 10^7) are compatible with the data in the 2nd table on bottom of p.14 where respective percentages vary from 44.8% : 55.1% (at 10^10) to 46% : 54% (at 10^12). I found that at p(n) ~ 10^80, the percentages become closer than 49% : 51%. - M. F. Hasler, May 12 2016
