COMMENTS

a(n) is the total number of non-isolated "1s" (consecutive 1s on 2 rows, 2 columns) that appear as 2 X 2 squares in the Thue-Morse sequence (another version starts with 1) logical matrices after n stages. See links for more details.

FORMULA

a(n) = A000982(A000975(n-1)) for n > 0, a(0) = 0.

G.f.: -x^2*(1-2*x+8*x^3) / ( (x-1)*(4*x-1)*(2*x+1)*(2*x-1)*(1+x) ). - R. J. Mathar, May 04 2014

18*a(n) = 4^n+7 -3*2^n +(-1)^n*(3+2^n), n>0. - R. J. Mathar, May 04 2014
