COMMENTS

A variant of the semi-Fibonacci numbers A030067.

Self-describing: the sequence of the absolute differences between odd-indexed terms is the sequence itself.

It appears that the record values form sequence A038754 and occur at indices of the form 2^k-1. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 02 2010

Does the sequence contain every positive integer (cf. A169741)?
