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

This sequence can also be defined as follows: a(n) is the unique sequence such that a(1) = a(2) = 1 and the second differences of a(n) are 2, except that the a(n)th second difference is 1 for all n. In other words, if b(n) = a(n+2) - 2a(n+1) + a(n) is the second-difference function for a(n), x(n) = 2 - b(n) is the characteristic function for a(n). - Joel B. Lewis, Mar 16 2007

EXAMPLE

a(6) = min(5,1) + min(5,1) + min(5,2) + min(5,4) + min(5,8) = 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 5 = 13.
