%N a(1) = 1. For n >=2, a(n) = the smallest integer > a(n-1) such that both a(n) and a(n)-a(n-1) have the same number of (non-leading) 0's when they are represented in binary.

%C For n >= 2, a(n) - a(n-1) = A160824(n).

%C It is easy to see that: If a(n) = 2^m - 2^k with k>0, then a(n+1) = 2^m - 2^(k-1); in all other cases 2^k|a(n) implies 2^k|a(n+1). From this one concludes that a(n) = 11*2^k implies a(n+1) = 13*2^k and a(n) = 13*2^k implies a(n+1) = 11*2^(k+1). - _Hagen von Eitzen_, Jun 01 2009
