A120562 Sum of binomial coefficients C(i+j,i) modulo 2 over all pairs (i,j) of positive integers satisfying 3i+j=n. 9

%N Sum of binomial coefficients C(i+j,i) modulo 2 over all pairs (i,j) of positive integers satisfying 3i+j=n.

%C a(n)=number of 'vectors' (...,e_k, e_{k-1},...,e_0) with e_k in {0,1,3} such that sum_k e_k 2^k=n. a(2^n-1)=F(n+1) a(2^{k+1}+j)+a(j)=a(2^k+j)+a(2^{k-1}+j) if 2^k>4j. This sequence corresponds to the pair (3,1) as Stern's diatomic sequence [A002487] corresponds to (2,1) and Gould's sequence [A001316] corresponds to (1,1). There are many interesting similarities to [A000119], the number of representations of n as a sum of distinct Fibonacci numbers.

%C A120562 can be generated from triangle A177444. Partial sums of A120562 = A177445. [From Gary W. Adamson, May 08 2010]

%C The Ca1 and Ca2 triangle sums, see A180662 for their definitions, of Sierpinski's triangle A047999 equal this sequence. Some A120562(2^n-p) sequences, 0<=p<=32, lead to known sequences, see the cross-refs. [From Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 05 2011]

%F Recurrence; a(0)=a(1)=1, a(2*n)=a(n) and a(2*n+1)=a(n)+a(n-1).

%F G.f.: A(x) = prod(i>=0, 1+x^(2^i)+x^(3*2^i) ) = (1+x+x^3)*A(x^2).

%e a(2^n)=1 since a(2n)=a(n).
