COMMENTS

If n and k are large with 0 <= k <= n, there is a high probability that there will be a position where the binary expansion of n is 0 and that of k is 1. By Lucas's theorem, this means that binomial(n,k) is even, and so A047999 is 0. This implies that A047999 is mostly zeros, and so we expect the present sequence to have slope -1, an observation which is supported by the graph.

In fact the above remark follows from the fact that the Hausdorff dimension of the 1's in the Sierpinski gasket (the limiting form of A047999) is 1.584... - N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 12 2016

The negative terms start at n = 178. - Georg Fischer, Feb 15 2019
