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”).

COMMENTS

When convolved with [1, 2, 2, 2, ...] gives the toothpick sequence A153006: (1, 3, 6, 9, ...). - Gary W. Adamson, May 25 2009

This sequence and the Adamson's comment both are mentioned in the Applegate-Pol-Sloane article, see chapter 8 "generating functions". - Omar E. Pol, Sep 20 2011

FORMULA

To get a nice recurrence, change the offset to 0 and multiply the g.f. by x as in the triangle in the example lines. Then we have: a(0)=0; a(2^i)=1; a(2^i-1)=2^(i-1) for i >= 1; otherwise write n = 2^i+j with 1 <= j <= 2^i-2, then a(n) = a(2^i+j) = 2*a(j) + a(j+1).

EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Jun 09 2009, edited by N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 17 2009:

May be written as a triangle:

0;

1;

1,2;

1,3,4,4;

1,3,4,5,5,10,12,8;

1,3,4,5,5,10,12,9,5,10,13,15,20,32,32,16;

1,3,4,5,5,10,12,9,5,10,13,15,20,32,32,17,5,10,13,15,20,32,33,23,20,33,41,...

The rows of the triangle converge to A151555.
