 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS The variance v(n) = Sum_{k=0..2^n-n-1} (k-m(n))^2*p(n,k) of the distribution function p(n,k) := binomial(2^n-n-1, k)/2^(2^n-n-1) with m(n) its mean value is 0., 0.25, 1., 2.75, 6.5, 14.25, 30., 61.75, 125.5, 253.25, 509., 1020.75, 2044.5, 4092.25, 8188... We set a(n) = round(v(n)). LINKS FORMULA a(n) = round(-1/4+(1/4)*2^n-(1/4)*n). G.f.: x^3*(1-x^3+x^4)/(1-3*x+2*x^2-2*x^6-x^4+3*x^5). [sign corrected by Georg Fischer, Apr 17 2020] v(n) = (1/8)*2^n-1/4+v(-1+n) with v(1) = 0 and a(n) = round(v(n)).
