COMMENTS

First differences are usually +1, occasionally -4 (because in base i-1 [3]+[7]=(+i)+(-i)=0) hence often a(i+j)=a(i)+a(j). Differences terms given here are period-16, but for full sequence is actually period-256 at least.

a(n) is the sum of the digits of n when written in base -4 using digits 0 to 3 (A007608).  This is since in Penney's digit substitution for A066321, the base -4 digits 0 to 3 become bit strings of exactly 0 to 3 many 1-bits each respectively. - Kevin Ryde, Sep 09 2019

FORMULA

a(n) = A000120(A066321(n)) = A007953(A007608(n)). - Kevin Ryde, Sep 09 2019

EXAMPLE

A066321(4) = 464 = 111010000 (binary) so a(4) = 4.  Or A007608(4) == 130 in base -4 and sum of digits is a(4) = 1+3+0 = 4.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = my(ret=0); while(n, ret+=n%4; n\=-4); ret; \\ Kevin Ryde, Sep 09 2019
