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

A283894:=proc(n) option remember: if n <= 0 then 0: elif n = 1 then 17: elif n = 2 then 2: else A283894(n-A283894(n-1)) + A283894(n-A283894(n-2)): fi: end:
