Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

A130250 Minimal index k of a Jacobsthal number such that A001045(k)>=n (the 'upper' Jacobsthal inverse). 8

%N Minimal index k of a Jacobsthal number such that A001045(k)>=n (the 'upper' Jacobsthal inverse).

%C Inverse of the Jacobsthal sequence (A001045), nearly, since a(A001045(n))=n except for n=2 (see A130249 for another version). a(n+1) is equal to the partial sum of the Jacobsthal indicator sequence (see A105348).

%F a(n)=ceiling(log_2(3n-1))=1+floor(log_2(3n-2)) for n>=1. Also true: a(n)=A130249(n-1)+1=A130253(n-1) for n>=1. G.f.: g(x)=x/(1-x)*sum{k>=0, x^A001045(k)}.

%e a(10)=5 because A001045(5)=11>=10, but A001045(4)=5<10

%Y For partial sums see A130252. Other related sequences A130249, A130253, A105348. A001045, A130234, A130242.
