Table of n, a(n) for n=1..37.

FORMULA

a(n) = A255072((2^(n+1))-2) - A255072((2^n)-2).

a(n) = A255061(n+1) - A255061(n).

a(n) = A255125(n) + A255126(n).

a(n) = A255063(n) + A255064(n).

Other identities and observations:

It seems that a(n) <= A213709(n) for all n >= 1. A254119 gives the difference between these two sequences.

From Antti Karttunen, Feb 21 2015: (Start)

For n>1, a(n-1) = Sum_{k=A255062(n) .. A255061(n+1)} secondmsb(A255056(k)).

Here secondmsb is implemented by the starting offset 2 version of A079944, and effectively gives the second most significant bit in the binary expansion of n. The formula follows from the semi-regular nature of number-of-runs beanstalk, as in the upper half of any next higher range [A255062(n+1) .. A255061(n+2)] of its infinite trunk (A255056), the beanstalk imitates its behavior in the range [A255062(n) .. A255061(n+1)].

(PARI)

A005811(n) = hammingweight(bitxor(n, n\2));

A255071(n) = { my(k, i); k = (2^(n+1))-2; i = 1; while(1, k = k - A005811(k); if(!bitand(k+1, k+2), return(i), i++)); };

for(n=1, 48, write("b255071.txt", n, " ", A255071(n)));

(Scheme)

(define (A255071 n) (- (A255072 (- (expt 2 (+ n 1)) 2)) (A255072 (- (expt 2 n) 2))))

(define (A255071shifted n) (add (COMPOSE A079944off2 A255056) (A255062 n) (A255061 (+ 1 n))))

(define (A079944off2 n) (A000035 (floor->exact (/ n (A072376 n))))) ;; Cf.

A079944.

;; Shifted variant gives: (map A255071shifted (iota 16)) --> (0 1 2 3 5 9 16 29 53 97 178 328 608 1134 2126 4001)

CROSSREFS

First differences of A255061 and A255062.

A255069 gives the first differences of this sequence.

a(n) differs from A192804(n+1) for the first time at n=11, where a(11) = 328, while A192804(12) = 327.
