FORMULA

Conjectures for n = 2^k+j, if 1<=j<=3:
a(2^k1) = 2^k, if k >= 2.
a(2^k+0) = 2^k, if k >= 0.
a(2^k+1) = 4, if k >= 1.
a(2^k+2) = 4, if k >= 1.
a(2^k+3) = 8, if k >= 2.
End of conjectures.


EXAMPLE

If written as a triangle:
0,
1,
2,
4,4,
4,4,8,8,
4,4,8,12,16,8,16,16,
4,4,8,12,16,16,24,26,24,12,20,28,40,20,32,32,
4,4,8,12,16,16,24,26,24,20,32,40,64,40,48,54,40,12,20,...
.
It appears that rows converge to A194696.
