COMMENTS
a(0)=0. The alternation is applied only to the nonzero bits and does not depend on the exponent of two. All integers have a unique reversing binary representation (see cited exercise for proof). Complement of A048724.
A permutation of the "odious" numbers A000069.
Write n-1 and 2n-1 in binary and add them mod 2; example: n = 6, n-1 = 5 = 101 in binary, 2n-1 = 11 = 1011 in binary and their sum is 1110 = 14, so a(6) = 14. - Philippe Deléham, Apr 29 2005
As already pointed out, this is a permutation of the odious numbers A000069 and A010060(A000069(n)) = 1, so A010060(a(n)) = 1; and A010060(A048724(n)) = 0. - Philippe Deléham, Apr 29 2005. Also a(n) = A000069(A003188(n - 1)).

FORMULA
a(n) = if n=0 or n=1 then n else b+2*a(b+(1-2*b)*n)/2) where b is the least significant bit in n.
a(n) = n XOR 2 (n - (n AND -n)).
a(1) = 1, a(2n) = 2*a(n), a(2n+1) = 2*a(n+1) - 2(-1)^n + 1. - Ralf Stephan, Aug 20 2003
a(n) = A048724(n-1) - (-1)^n. - Ralf Stephan, Sep 10 2003
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (1-(-1)^round(-n/2^k))/2*2^k. - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 27 2005
Closely related to Gray codes in another way: a(n) = 2 * A003188(n-1) + (n mod 2); a(n) = 4 * A003188((n-1) div 2) + (n mod 4). - Matt Erbst (matt(AT)erbst.org), Jul 18 2006 [corrected by Peter Munn, Jan 30 2021]
a(n) = n XOR 2(n AND NOT -n). - Chai Wah Wu, Jun 29 2022
a(n) = A003188(2n-1). - Friedjof Tellkamp, Jan 18 2024
EXAMPLE
a(5) = 13 = 8 + 4 + 1 -> 8 - 4 + 1 = 5.
MATHEMATICA
f[n_] := BitXor[n, 2 n + 1]; Array[f, 60, 0] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 09 2010 *)
PROG
