Write n in binary, then modify each run of 0's and each run of 1's by appending a 0. a(n) is the decimal equivalent of the result.

COMMENTS

A variation of A175046. Indices of record values are given by A319423.
From Chai Wah Wu, Nov 21 2018: (Start)
Let f(k) = Sum_{i=2^k..2^(k+1)1} a(i), i.e., the sum ranges over all numbers with a (k+1)bit binary expansion. Thus f(0) = a(1) = 2 and f(1) = a(2) + a(3) = 14.
Then f(k) = 15*6^(k1)  2^(k1) for k >= 0.
Proof: the equation for f is true for k = 0. Looking at the last 2 bits of n, it is easy to see that a(4n) = 2*a(2n), a(4n+1) = 4*a(2n)+2, a(4n+2) = 4*a(2n+1) and a(4n+3) = 2*a(2n+1)+2. By summing over the recurrence relations for a(n), we get f(k+2) = Sum_{i=2^k..2^(k+1)1} (f(4i) + f(4i+1) + f(4i+2) + f(4i+3)) = Sum_{i=2^k..2^(k+1)1} (6a(2i) + 6a(2i+1) + 4) = 6*f(k+1) + 2^(k+2). Solving this firstorder recurrence relation with the initial condition f(1) = 14 shows that f(k) = 15*6^(k1)  2^(k1) for k > 0.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*A320263(n).
a(4n) = 2*a(2n), a(4n+1) = 4*a(2n)+2, a(4n+2) = 4*a(2n+1) and a(4n+3) = 2*a(2n+1)+2.  Chai Wah Wu, Nov 21 2018


EXAMPLE

6 in binary is 110. Modify each run by appending a 0 to get 11000, which is 24 in decimal. So a(6) = 24.
