COMMENTS

This recurrence is reminiscent of Fibonacci's, except that in each step the arguments as well as the result are passed through the binary-reflected Gray code mapping, which introduces a degree of pseudo-randomness.

Conjecture: the mean growth rate r(n) = (a(2n)/a(n))^(1/n) appears to converge to sqrt(2), with the consecutive-terms ratio s(n) = a(n)/a(n-1) exhibiting large and persistent fluctuations around the mean value.

EXAMPLE

r(10) = 1.417436..., r(1000) = 1.414393...

s(100) = 0.629..., s(101) = 3.210..., s(102) = 0.618...

s(10000) = 0.631..., s(10001) = 3.183..., s(10002) = 0.608...

PROG

(PARI) gray(m)=bitxor(m, m>>1);

a=vector(1000); a[1]=1; a[2]=1; for(n=3, #a, a[n]=gray(gray(a[n-1])+gray(a[n-2]))); a
