COMMENTS

In other words, if b(m) and b(m+1) are adjacent elements written in binary, then (b(m) AND b(m+1)) = 0 for 1 <= m <= n1. (If a logical AND is applied to each pair of adjacent terms, the result is zero.)
Let 2^k be the largest power of 2 <= n. Note that element 2^k1 can be adjacent only to 2^k. So 2^k1 must be at the beginning or the end of the permutation while 2^k must be next to 2^k1. The elements 2^k12^i (i=1,...,k1) can be adjacent only to 2^i, 2^k and 2^k+2^i implying that n must be >=2^k+2^(k3) to yield a nonzero number of permutations.
