COMMENTS

In calculating terms of this sequence, use the convention that a(n)=0 for n <= 0.
Most terms in this sequence alternate between 2 and a large number. Such runs of terms are separated by 102 other terms, and each run is approximately twice as long as the previous.

FORMULA

For nonnegative integers i, if 1 <= 2n + r <= 594*2^(i+1)  2, then
a(594*2^i + 100 + 2n) = 2
a(594*2^i + 100 + 2n + 1) = 594*2^(i+1)  2.


MAPLE
