%N Ordinal transform of A265332.

%C This is a fractal sequence.

%C It appears that each group of 2^k terms starts with 1 and ends with the remaining powers of two from 2^k down to 2^1.

%C From _Antti Karttunen_, Jan 09-12 2016: (Start)

%C This is ordinal transform of A265332, which is modified A051135 (with a(1) = 1, instead of 2). - after _Franklin T. Adams-Watters_' original definition for this sequence.

%C A000079 (powers of 2) indeed gives the positions of ones in this sequence. This follows from the properties (3) and (4) of A004001 given on page 227 of Kubo & Vakil paper (page 3 of PDF), which together also imply the pattern observed above, more clearly represented as:

%C a(2) = 1.

%C a(3..4) = 2, 1.

%C a(6..8) = 4, 2, 1.

%C a(13..16) = 8, 4, 2, 1.

%C a(28..31) = 16, 8, 4, 2, 1.

%C etc.

%F Let b(1) = 1, b(n) = A051135(n) for n > 1. Then a(n) is the number of b(k) that equal b(n) for 1 <= k <= n: sum( 1, 1<=k<=n and a(k)=a(n) ).
