COMMENTS

The ratio d(n) = a(n)/n, while obviously bounded, has no limit. Rather, it kind of 'oscillates', at an exponentially decreasing rate, between about 1/3 and 2/3. As mentioned by Jeffreys, the values of liminf and limsup of the set {d(n)} are 1/3 and 2/3, respectively. A proof of this fact by elementary means is relatively easy, for example using the first formula below, but the following statement is a conjecture: Any real value c comprised in the interval [1/3,2/3] is an accumulation point of {d(n)}.

FORMULA

For k>=0 and 4^k <= m <= 2*4^k (i.e., m spanning a block of 0's in A275974), a(m) = 1+2*(1+4+4^2+...+4^(k-1)) = (1/3)+(2/3)*4^k.

For any n, d(n) = a(n)/n > 1/3.

liminf_{n->infinity}d(n) = 1/3 and limsup_{n->infinity}d(n) = 2/3.

PROG

(PARI) JeffreysSequence(nmax) = {

  my(a=vector(nmax), n=0, p=1); a[n++]=1;

  while(n<nmax,

    for(k=2^(p-1)+1, 2^p, a[n++]=0; if(n==nmax, break));

    if(n<nmax, for(k=2^p+1, 2^(p+1), a[n++]=1; if(n==nmax, break)));

    p+=2; );

  return(a); }

a = JeffreysSequence(2100);

for(n=2, #a, a[n]+=a[n-1]); a
