COMMENTS

a(n) is the position of the second appearance of n in A117384, where A117384(m) = A117384(k) and k = 4*A117384(m) - m. The Connell sequence (A001614) is generated as: 1 odd, 2 even, 3 odd, ...

FORMULA

A001614(n) = A118012(a(n)).

a(n) = 2n+[(1+sqrt(8n-7))/2]. - Juri-Stepan Gerasimov Aug 25 2009

a(n) = 2*n+round(sqrt(2*n)). - Gerald Hillier, Apr 16 2015

From Robert Israel, Apr 20 2015 (Start):

a(n) = 2*n + 1 + Sum(j=0 .. n-2, A023531(j)).

G.f. 2*x/(1-x)^2 + x/(1-x) * Sum(j=0..infinity, x^(j*(j+1)/2))

= 2*x/(1-x)^2 + x^(7/8)/(2-2*x) * Theta2(0,sqrt(x)), where Theta2 is a Jacobi theta function. (End)
