FORMULA

See Maple program for recurrence.

MAPLE

Maple program from N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 01 2010:

# First construct A168131:

w := proc(n) option remember; local k, i;

if (n=0) then RETURN(0)

elif (n <= 3) then RETURN(n-1)

else

k:=floor(log(n)/log(2)); i:=n-2^k;

if (i=0) then RETURN(2^(k-1)-1)

elif (i<2^k-2) then RETURN(2*w(i)+w(i+1));

elif (i=2^k-2) then RETURN(2*w(i)+w(i+1)+1);

else RETURN(2*w(i)+w(i+1)+2);

fi; fi; end;

# Then construct A160125:

r := proc(n) option remember; local k, i;

if (n<=2) then RETURN(0)

elif (n <= 4) then RETURN(2)

else

k:=floor(log(n)/log(2)); i:=n-2^k;

if (i=0) then RETURN(2^k-2)

elif (i<=2^k-2) then RETURN(4*w(i));

else RETURN(4*w(i)+2);

fi; fi; end;

[seq(r(n), n=0..200)];
