Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

FORMULA

Write n = 2^i +j, 0 <= j < 2^i; then a(n) = Sum_k 2^(wt(j+k)-k)*binomial(wt(j+k),k). except that a(2^r-1) = 2^(r-1). - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 03 2009, Jul 16 2009

G.f.: x*(Prod(1+x^(2^k-1)+2*x^(2^k),k=0..oo)-1)/(1+2*x). - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 05 2009
