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 constant. Such runs of terms are eventually separated by either 224 or 562 other terms, and each run is approximately twice as long as the previous.
