 OFFSET 1,7 COMMENTS Base-2 expansion of a(n) encodes the steps where numbers that are either of the form 12k+5 or of the form 12k+7 are encountered when map x -> A252463(x) is iterated down to 1, starting from x=n. The AND - XOR formulas just restate the fact that J(3|n) = J(-1|n)*J(-3|n), as the Jacobi-symbol is multiplicative (also) with respect to its upper argument. LINKS Antti Karttunen, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..2048 FORMULA a(1) = 0, and for n > 1, a(n) = 2*a(A252463(n)) + [n == 1 (mod 2)]*[J(3|n) == -1], where J is the Jacobi-symbol, and [ ]'s are Iverson brackets, whose product gives 1 only if n is an odd number for which J(3|n) = -1, and 0 otherwise. a(n) = A292263(n) AND (A292383(n) XOR A292945(n)), where AND is bitwise-and (A004198) and XOR is bitwise-XOR (A003987). a(n) = A292263(n) AND (A292385(n) XOR A292941(n)). [See comments.] For n >= 0, a(A163511(n)) = A292256(n). For n >= 1, a(n) + A292253(n) + A292943(n) = A243071(n).
