From Emeric Deutsch, Jan 27 2018: (Start)
Also the indices of the compositions whose parts alternate: odd, even, odd, ... . For the definition of the index of a composition see A298644.
For example, 57 is in the sequence since its binary form is 111001 and the composition [3,2,1] has parts: odd, even, odd. 59 is not in the sequence since its binary form is 111011 and the composition [3,1,2] has parts: odd, odd, even. The command c(n) from the Maple program yields the composition having index n. (End)
