%N Numbers of the form 2^i - 2^j with i >= j.

%C Numbers whose digits in base 2 are in nonincreasing order.

%C Might be called "nialpdromes".

%C Subset of A077436. Proof: Since a(n) is of form (2^i-1)2^j, i,j>=0, a(n)^2 = [2^(2i)-2^(i+1)]2^(2j) + 2^(2j) where the first sum term has i-1 one bits and its 2j-th bit is zero, while the second sum term switches the 2j-th bit to one, giving i one bits, as in a(n). - _Ralf Stephan_, Mar 08 2004

%C Numbers n such that binary representation contains no "01". - _Benoit Cloitre_, May 23 2004

%C Every polynomial with coefficients equal to 1 for the leading terms and 0 after that, evaluated at 2. For instance a(13) = x^4 + x^3 + x^2 at 2, a(14) = x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x at 2. - _Ben Paul Thurston_, Jan 11 2008

%C From _Gary W. Adamson_, Jul 18 2008: (Start)

%C As a triangle by rows starting:

%C 1;

%C 2, 3;

%C 4, 6, 7;

%C 8, 12, 14, 15;

%C 16, 24, 28, 30, 31;

%C ...,

%C equals A000012 * A130123 * A000012, where A130123 = (1, 0,2; 0,0,4; 0,0,0,8;...). Row sums of this triangle = A000337 starting (1, 5, 17, 49, 129, ...). (End)

%C First differences are A057728 = 1; 1; 1; 1; 2,1; 1; 4,2,1; 1; 8,4,2,1; 1;... i.e., decreasing powers of 2, separated by another "1". - _M. F. Hasler_, May 06 2009

%C Apart from first term, numbers that are powers of 2 or the sum of some consecutive powers of 2. - _Omar E. Pol_, Feb 14 2013

%C A049502(a(n)) = 0. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jun 17 2015

%C From _Andres Cicuttin_, Apr 29 2016: (Start)

%C Numbers that can be digitally generated with twisted ring (Johnson) counters. This is, the binary digits of a(n) correspond to those stored in a shift register where the input bit of the first bit storage element is the inverted output of the last storage element. After starting with all 0’s, each new state is obtained by rotating the stored bits but inverting at each state transition the last bit that goes to the first position (see link).

%C Examples: for a(n) represented by three bits

%C Binary

%C a(5)= 4 -> 100 last bit = 0

%C a(6)= 6 -> 110 first bit = 1 (inverted last bit of previous number)

%C a(7)= 7 -> 111

%C and for a(n) represented by four bits

%C Binary

%C a(8) = 8 -> 1000

%C a(9) = 12 -> 1100 last bit = 0

%C a(10)= 14 -> 1110 first bit = 1 (inverted last bit of previous number)

%C a(11)= 15 -> 1111

%C (End)

%C Powers of 2 represented in bases which are members of this sequence must always contain at least one digit which is also a power of 2. This is because 2^i mod (2^i - 2^j) = 2^j, which means the last digit always cycles through powers of 2 (or if i=j+1 then the first digit is a power of 2 and the rest are trailing zeros). The only known non-member of this sequence with this property is 5. - _Ely Golden_, Sep 05 2017

%F a(n) = 2^s(n) - 2^((s(n)^2 + s(n) - 2n)/2) where s(n) = ceiling((-1 + sqrt(1+8n))/2). - _Sam Alexander_, Jan 08 2005

%F G.f.: (x^2/((2-x)*(1-x)))*(1 + Sum_{k>=0} x^((k^2+k)/2)*(1 + x*(2^k-1))). The sum is related to Jacobi theta functions. - _Robert Israel_, Feb 24 2015
