COMMENTS

Consider the binary tree illustrated in A005940: If we start from any n, computing successive iterations of A252463 until 1 is reached (i.e., we are traversing level by level towards the root of the tree, starting from that vertex of the tree where n is located at), a(n) gives the number of odd numbers > 1 encountered on the path (i.e., excluding the final 1 from the count but including the starting n if it was odd).

FORMULA

a(1) = 0; for n > 1: a(2n) = a(n), a(2n+1) = 1 + a(A064989(n)).
a(n) = A080791(A156552(n)). [Number of nonleading 0bits in A156552(n).]
Other identities:
For all n >= 2:
a(n) = A061395(n)  1.
a(n) = A000120(A243071(n))  1. [One less than the binary weight of A243071(n).]
a(n) = A252464(n)  A252736(n)  1.
