COMMENTS

a(n) is the index of zeros in the complement of the square analog of the BaumSweet sequence, which is b(n) = 1 if the binary representation of n contains no block of consecutive zeros of exactly a nontrivial square number length; otherwise b(n) = 0.

FORMULA

a(n) is in this sequence iff n (base 2) has a block (not a subblock) of k^2 = A000290(k) consecutive zeros for k>1.


EXAMPLE

a(1) = 16 because 16 (base 2) = 10000, which has a block of 4 = 2^2 zeros.
a(2) = 33 because 33 (base 2) = 100001, which has a block of 4 zeros.
a(3) = 48 because 48 (base 2) = 110000, which has a block of 4 zeros.
a(49) = 512 because 512 (base 2) = 1000000000, with a block of 9 = 3^2 zeros.
Similarly, there are blocks of exactly 9 zeros in 1025, 1536, 2050, 2051, 3073, 3584, 7149, 8196, 8197, 8198, 8199.
65536, 131073, 196608, 262146 and 262147 are in this sequence because (base 2) they each have a block of 16 = 4^2 zeros.
33554432 has a block of 25 = 5^2 zeros.
