COMMENTS

Although it initially appears that a(n)8n = the 16periodic sequence {2,6,10,14,18,22,26,30,34,38,42,46,50,54,6,2}, this pattern eventually breaks down. For example, 2^1302 is in this 16periodic sequence, so is followed by A102370(2^1302) = 2^1302 + 4 + 2^130. However, the first break occurs somewhere beyond the first 400 million terms.
