COMMENTS

Rapidly growing: for n=10,20,30,40,50 the terms have 3, 138, 914, 3649, 248128 digits respectively (cf. A131059). - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 12 2007

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..17.

FORMULA

1,2 = 12 / 2 = 6, is even so = 26 /2 = 13 is odd so sum 1 and / by 2 = 7, +1 /2 = 4, is even so I join with 7 = 74 /2 = 37 +1 /2 = 19, etc

a(n)=ceiling(a(n-1)/2)+(1+(-1)^a(n-1))*10^floor(log_10(a(n-1))+1)*a(n-2)/4, n>=2. - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 12 2007
