COMMENTS

Here i = sqrt(1).
First differences follow a strange period16 pattern: 1 11 1 XXX 1 11 1 29 1 11 1 189 1 11 1 29 where XXX is given by A066322. Number of onebits is A066323.
From Andrey Zabolotskiy, Feb 06 2017: (Start)
(Observations.)
Actually, the sequence of the first differences can be split into blocks of size of any power of 2, and there will be only one position in the block that does not repeat. In this sense, one may say that the first differences follow (almost)period2^s pattern for any s > 0.
Specifically, the first differences are given by the formula: a(n+1)a(n) = A282137(A007814((n xor ...110011001100) + 1)). Here binary representation of n is bitwisexored with the period4 bit sequence (A021913 written righttoleft) which is infinite or simply long enough; A007814(m) does not depend on the bits of m other than the least significant 1.
A282137 gives all first differences in the order of decreasing occurrence frequency.
(End)
Penney shows that since (i1)^4 = 4, the representation a(n) of a real integer n is found by writing n in base 4 using digits 0 to 3 (A007608), changing those digits to bit strings 0000, 0001, 1100, 1101 respectively, and interpreting as binary.  Kevin Ryde, Sep 07 2019

FORMULA

In "rebase notation" a(n) = (i1)[n]2.
G.f. g(z) satisfies g(z) = z*(1+12*z+13*z^2)/(1z^4) + 16*z^4*(13+12*z^4+z^8)/((1z)*(1+z^4)*(1+z^8)) + 256*(1z^16)*g(z^16)/(z^12z^13).  Robert Israel, Oct 21 2016


EXAMPLE

a(4) = 464 = 2^8 + 2^7 + 2^6 + 2^4 since (i1)^8 + (i1)^7 + (i1)^6 + (i1)^4 = 4.


MAPLE

t:= n mod 4;
procname(t) + 16*procname((tn)/4)
end proc:
