Or, a(n)=number of 1's ("live" cells) at stage n of a 2-dimensional cellular automata evolving by the rule: 1 if NE+NW+S=1, else 0.
This is the odd-rule cellular automaton defined by OddRule 013 (see Ekhad-Sloane-Zeilberger "Odd-Rule Cellular Automata on the Square Grid" link). - N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 25 2015
Or, start with S=[1]; replace S by [S, 3*S]; repeat ad infinitum.
Fixed point of the morphism 1 -> 13, 3 -> 39, 9 -> 9(27), ... = 3^k -> 3^k 3^(k+1), ... starting from a(0) = 1; 1 -> 13 -> 1339 -> = 1339399(27) -> 1339399(27)399(27)9(27)(27)(81) -> ..., . - Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 24 2006
Equals row sums of triangle A166453 (the square of Sierpiński's gasket, A047999). - Gary W. Adamson, Oct 13 2009
First bisection of A169697=1,5,3,19,3,. a(2n+2)+a(2n+3)=12,12,36,=12*A147610 ? Distribution of terms (in A000244): A011782=1,A000079 for first array, A000079 for second. - Paul Curtz, Apr 20 2010
a(A000225(n)) = A000244(n) and a(m) != A000244(n) for m < A000225(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 14 2011
This sequence pertains to phenotype Punnett square mathematics. Start with X=1. Each hybrid cross involves the equation X:3X. Therefore, the ratio in the first (mono) hybrid cross is X=1:3X=3(1) or 3; or 3:1. When you move up to the next hybridization level, replace the previous cross ratio with X. X now represents 2 numbers-1:3. Therefore, the ratio in the second (di) hybrid cross is X=(1:3):3X=[3(1):3(3)] or (3:9). Put it together and you get 1:3:3:9. Each time you move up a hybridization level, replace the previous ratio with X, and use the same equation-X:3X to get its ratio. - John Michael Feuk, Dec 10 2011

FORMULA
a(n) = Product_{k=0..log_2(n)} 3^b(n,k), where b(n,k) = coefficient of 2^k in binary expansion of n (offset 0). - Paul D. Hanna
a(n) = 3*a(n/2) if n is even, otherwise a(n) = a((n+1)/2).
G.f.: Product_{k>=0} (1+3*x^(2^k)). The generalization k^A000120 has generating function (1 + kx)*(1 + kx^2)*(1 + kx^4)*...
a(n+1) = Sum_{i=0..n} (binomial(n, i) mod 2) * Sum_{j=0..i} (binomial(i, j) mod 2). - Benoit Cloitre, Nov 16 2003
a(0)=1, a(n) = 3*a(n-A053644(n)) for n > 0. - Joe Slater, Jan 31 2016
G.f. A(x) satisfies: A(x) = (1 + 3*x) * A(x^2). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 09 2019
