A020944(a(n)) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 13 2011

a(n) + a(n-1)^2 is a perfect square. - Vincenzo Librandi, Oct 28 2011

Number of distinct continued fractions of n terms chosen from {1,2}. - Clark Kimberling, Jul 20 2015

Also, the decimal representation of the x-axis, from the origin to the right edge, of the n-th stage of growth of the two-dimensional cellular automaton defined by "Rule 643", based on the 5-celled von Neumann neighborhood, initialized with a single black (ON) cell at stage zero.
