Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A120424 Having specified two initial terms, the "Half-Fibonacci" sequence proceeds like the Fibonacci sequence, except that the terms are halved before being added if they are even. 1

COMMENTS

For sequences that are infinitely increasing, the following are possible conjectures. Half of the terms are even in the limit. There are infinitely many consecutive pairs that differ by 1.

This is essentially a variant of the Collatz - Fibonacci mixture described in A069202. Instead of conditionally dividing the result by 2, this sequence conditionally divides the two previous terms by 2. The initial two terms of A069202 are 1,2, which corresponds to the initial terms 1,4 for this sequence.

FORMULA

a(n) = (a(n-1) if a(n-1) is odd, else a(n-1)/2) + (a(n-2) if a(n-2) is odd, else a(n-2)/2).

EXAMPLE

Given a(21)=100 and a(22)=117, then a(23)=50+117=167. Given a(13)=64 and a(14)=68, then a(15)=32+34=66.

MATHEMATICA

HalfFib[a_, b_, n_] := Module[{HF, i}, HF = {a, b}; For [i = 3, i < n, i++, HF = Append[HF, HF[[i - 2]]/(2 - Mod[HF[[i - 2]], 2]) + HF[[i - 1]]/(2 - Mod[HF[[i - 1]], 2])]]; HF] HalfFib[1, 3, 100]
