LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..23.

FORMULA

Appears to be equal to 2^n - floor(n / 2)

G.f.: x*(-2*x^3 + 3*x - 2)/((x - 1)^2*(2*x^2 + x - 1)) [Conjectured by Harvey P. Dale, Apr 06 2011]

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 3 because binomial(2^2, 2^1) in binary = 110

MATHEMATICA

Table[IntegerLength[Binomial[2^n, 2^(n-1)], 2], {n, 25}] (* or *)

CoefficientList[Series[(-2 x^3+3x-2)/((x-1)^2 (2x^2+x-1)), {x, 0, 25}], x] (* Harvey P. Dale, Apr 06 2011 *)

PROG

(PHP): $LastFact = gmp_init('1'); for ($i = 2; $i !== 65536; $i *= 2) { $Fact = gmp_fact($i); $Result = gmp_div_q($Fact, gmp_pow($OldFact, 2)); $LastFact = $Fact; echo gmp_strval($Result, 2).'<br>'; }

CROSSREFS

a(n) represents the size of A037293 in binary - see also the central binomial coefficients: A001405.

Sequence in context: A281716 A192570 A019595 * A103421 A205484 A151530
