%N Index at which A137823(n) occurs first in A137822 (gaps in numbers m such that 3 | sum( Catalan(k), k=1..2m)).

%C Other characterization of the sequence: concatenate pattern (1,3,2) multiplying it by 4 after each concatenation step. Or: Start with 1,3,2, then iteratively append the whole sequence obtained so far multiplied by 4^(length of the sequence divided by 3)

%C See A137822 and A137823 for more comments and formulas.

%H <a href="/index/Rec">Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients</a>, signature (0,0,4).

%F If n=2 (mod 3) then a(n) = 3*2^[2(n-1)/3]; else a(n) = 2^[(2(n-1)/3].

%F a(n) = 4*a(n-3) for n>3. G.f.: x*(1+x)*(1+2*x)/(1-4*x^3). [_Colin Barker_, Aug 19 2012]

%o (PARI) A137824(n) = if( n%3==2,3,1)<<(2*(n-1)\3)

%o (PARI) A137824(n) = for( i=1,#A137822, A137822[i]==A137823[n] & return(i))
