COMMENTS

Set y = x = .5'i + .5'j + .5'k + .5e Define a(0) = 1 (this is twice the coefficient of 'i in x), then "loop" steps 15 as described for A108618. a(n) is given by twice the coefficient of 'i (or 'j or 'k) in y from step 4 inside of the nth loop.

MATHEMATICA

a[0] = b[0] = 1;
f[n_] := Sign[n]*Mod[n, 2];
a[n_] := a[n] = (1/2)*(a[n1]  3*b[n1]) + 3*f[(1/2)*(a[n1] + b[n1])] + f[(1/2)*(a[n1]  3*b[n1])] + 1;
b[n_] := b[n] = (1/2)*(a[n1] + b[n1]) + 1;
A108619 = Table[b[n], {n, 0, 100}] (* JeanFrançois Alcover, Feb 25 2015, after Benoit Jubin *)
