Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A072894 Let c(k) be defined as follows: c(1)=1, c(2)=n, c(k+2) = c(k+1)/2 + c(k)/2 if c(k+1) and c(k) have the same parity; c(k+2) = c(k+1)/2 + c(k)/2 + 1/2 otherwise; a(n) = limit_{ k -> infinity} c(k). 2

COMMENTS

Conjectures : (1) a(n+1)-a(n) = 0 or 1; (2) lim n ->infinity a(n)/n = 2/3; (3) 1/2 < (3a(n)-2n)/Log(n) <3/2 for any n > 1000. Does lim n -> infinity (3a(n)-2n)/Log(n) = 1 ?

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..73.

EXAMPLE

If n=5, c(3)=(1+5)/2=3, c(4)=(3+5)/2=4, c(5)=(4+3+1)/2=4, ..., hence a(5)=4.
