 A144789 Consider the runs of 0's in the binary representation of n, each of these runs being on the edge of the binary representation n and/or being bounded by 1's. a(n) = the length of the shortest such run (with positive length) of 0's in binary n. a(n) = 0 if there are no runs of 0's in binary n. 4

 OFFSET 1,4 LINKS EXAMPLE 20 in binary is 10100. The runs of 0s are as follows: 1(0)1(00). The shortest of these runs contains exactly one 0's So a(20) = 1.
