COMMENTS

This sequence has the same relationship to A000930 (the Narayana's Cows sequence) as A035614 has to the Fibonacci numbers. Consequently, just as A035614 is the number of initial consecutive zeros in the Fibonacci coding of n (A014417), a(n) is the number of initial consecutive zeros in the analogous coding of n that uses the Narayana sequence as its base.


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..105.


FORMULA

The segment between the first M and the first M+1 is given by the segment before the first M2.


EXAMPLE

The upperleft corner of the 3rdorder Zeckendorf array (A136189) is as follows:
1 2 3 4 6
5 8 12 17 25
7 11 16 23 34
a(1) = a(5) = a(7) = 0, because 1, 5, and 7 occur in column 0;
a(2) = a(8) = a(11) = 1, because 2, 8, and 11 occur in column 1, etc.


PROG

(Haskell)
a166238 = a' 0 where a' n = n : takeWhile (< (n  2)) a166238 ++ a' (n + 1)
