COMMENTS
Fractal sequence obtained from powers of 2.
k occurs at (2*k-1)*A000079(m), m >= 0. - Robert G. Wilson v, May 23 2006
Sequence is T^(oo)(1) where T is acting on a word w = w(1)w(2)..w(m) as follows: T(w) = "1"w(1)"2"w(2)"3"(...)"m"w(m)"m+1". For instance T(ab) = 1a2b3. Thus T(1) = 112, T(T(1)) = 1121324, T(T(T(1))) = 112132415362748. - Benoit Cloitre, Mar 02 2009
Note that iterating the post-numbering operator U(w) = w(1) 1 w(2) 2 w(3) 3... produces the same limit sequence except with an additional "1" prepended, i.e., 1,1,1,2,1,3,2,4,... - Glen Whitney, Aug 30 2023
In the binary expansion of n, first swallow all zeros from the right, then add 1, and swallow the now-appearing 0 bit as well. - Ralf Stephan, Aug 22 2013
Although A264646 and this sequence initially agree in their digit-streams, they differ after 48 digits. - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 20 2015
"[This is a] fractal because we get the same sequence after we delete from it the first appearance of all positive integers" - see Cobeli and Zaharescu link. - Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 03 2018
From Peter Munn, Jun 16 2022: (Start)
The sequence is the list of positive integers interleaved with the sequence itself. Provided the offset is suitable (which is the case here) a term of such a self-interleaved sequence is determined by the odd part of its index. Putting some of the formulas given here into words, a(n) is the position of the odd part of n in the list of odd numbers.
Applying the interleaving transform again, we get A110963.
(End)
Omitting all 1's leaves A131987 + 1. - David James Sycamore, Jul 26 2022
a(n) is also the smallest positive number not among the terms between a(a(n-1)) and a(n-1) inclusive (with a(0)=1 prepended). - Neal Gersh Tolunsky, Mar 07 2023

a(n) = A249745(A126760(A003961(n))) = A249745(A253887(A048673(n))). That is, this sequence plays the same role for the numbers in array A135764 as A126760 does for the odd numbers in array A135765. - Antti Karttunen, Feb 04 2015 & Jan 19 2016
