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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Amiram Eldar, Plot of a(n)/n for n = 1000..10000

FORMULA

a(n) = (-1)*Sum_{k=1..n} (-1)^A002977(k).

a(n) > 0 and a(n) seems to be asymptotic to c*n where c = 0.4...

EXAMPLE

S(12) = (1,3,4,7,9,10,13,15,19,21,22,27) and there are 9 odd terms and 3 even terms in S(12), hence a(12) = 9-3 = 6.

MATHEMATICA

seq[max_] := Module[{s = Flatten[NestWhileList[Flatten[{2*# + 1, 3*# + 1}] &, 1, Min[#1] < max &]], t}, t = Union[Select[s, # <= max &]]; FoldList[Plus, -(-1)^t]]; seq[300] (* Amiram Eldar, May 07 2022 *)
