 A160855 a(n) is the smallest positive integer not occurring earlier in the sequence such that Sum_{k=1..n} a(k) written in binary contains binary n as a substring. 9

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Is this a permutation of the positive integers? The smallest number not in {a(n) | n<=8000000} is 5083527. It appears that the quotient (a(1)+...+a(n))/n^2 meanders around between 1/2 (=perfect permutation) and 2/3: at n=8000000 the value is approximately 0.5866 (does it converge? 1/2? Golden ratio?). The scatterplot of the first 100000 terms (see "graph") has some remarkable features which have not yet been explained. - Leroy Quet, Jul 05 2009 The lines that appear in the scatterplot seem to be related to the position of n in the sum of the first n terms; see colorized scatterplots in the Links section. - Rémy Sigrist, May 08 2017 From Michael De Vlieger, May 09 2017: (Start) Starting positions of n in Sum_{k=1..n} a(k) written in binary: {1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 3, 2, 4, 3, 1, 1, 1, 5, 3, 2, 4, 3, 5, 4, 5, ...}.
