COMMENTS

Here the site swap pattern ...,2,16,2,4,2,8,2,4,2,0,2,4,2,8,2,4,2,16,2,... that spans over the Z (zero throw is at t=0) has been folded to N by picking values at t=0, t=1, t=-1, t=2, t=-2, etc. successively.

This pattern is shown in the figure 7 of Buhler and Graham paper and uses infinitely many balls, with each ball at step t thrown always to constant "height" 2^A001511[abs(t)] (no balls in hands at step t=0).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-x+x^2)/(1-x) + (1+x)*Sum(k>=1, 2^(k-1)*x^2^k/(1-x^2^k)). - Ralf Stephan, Apr 17 2003

MAPLE

[seq(TZ2(abs(N2Z(n))), n=1..120)];

N2Z := n -> ((-1)^n)*floor(n/2); Z2N := z -> 2*abs(z)+`if`((z < 1), 1, 0);

CROSSREFS

Bisection of this gives 2*A006519 or 2^A001511.

Sequence in context: A165207 A130501 A049116 * A060267 A214516 A238004
