Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

It appears that various properties and unsolved problems associated with the Kolakoski sequence, A000002, apply also to A022300.

Clark Kimberling, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..20000

EXAMPLE

a(1) =1, so the 3rd run has length 1, so a(5) must be 2.

a(2) = 1, so the 4th run has length 1, so a(6) = 1.

a(3) = 2, so the 5th run has length 2, so a(7) = 1 and a(8) = 2.

a(4) = 1, so the 6th run has length 1, so a(9) = 1.

Globally, the runlength sequence of a is 2,1,1,1,2,1,2,1,1,2,1,1,2,...., and deleting the first two terms leaves a = A022300.

MATHEMATICA

a = {1, 1, 2}; Do[a = Join[a, ConstantArray[If[Last[a] == 1, 2, 1], {a[[n]]}]], {n, 200}]; a
