 A066327 Binary string which equals n when 1's, 2's, 4's and 8's bits have weights -1, 1, 3, 6 respectively, while the other bits have their usual weights. -1 if no such string exists. 1

%N Binary string which equals n when 1's, 2's, 4's and 8's bits have weights -1, 1, 3, 6 respectively, while the other bits have their usual weights. -1 if no such string exists.

%C After a(10), the pattern seems to be sequences of sixteen a(n), four of which without solution, then 12 formed by placing a member of the binary sequence 1,10,11,11,100,101 etc. in front of re-occurring list of the same 12 4-digit numbers. The description does not lead to a unique sequence: a(0)=0 and a(0)=11 are both valid. a(3)=111 and a(3)=100 are both valid. - _R. J. Mathar_, Mar 14 2006
