Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A078734 Start with 1,2, concatenate 2^k previous terms and change last term as follows: 1->2, 2->3, 3->1. 1
1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 2, 1, 1, 1 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

Andrew Howroyd, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1024

FORMULA

Sum_{k=1..n} a(k))/n -> 1.57....

Multiplicative with a(2^e) = (e mod 3) + 1, a(p^e) = 1 for odd prime p. - Andrew Howroyd, Jul 31 2018

EXAMPLE

Concatenating the first 2 terms 1,2 -> 1,2,1,2 and changing 2->3 gives the first 4 terms: 1,2,1,3.

Concatenating those first 4 terms ->1,2,1,3,1,2,1,3 and changing 3->1 gives the first 8 terms: 1,2,1,3,1,2,1,1.

PROG

(PARI) seq(n)={my(v=[1, 2]); while(#v < n, v=concat(v, v); v[#v] = v[#v] % 3 + 1); vector(n, i, v[i])} \\ Andrew Howroyd, Jul 31 2018

(PARI) a(n) = valuation(n, 2) % 3 + 1; \\ Andrew Howroyd, Jul 31 2018

(MAGMA) [Valuation(n, 2) mod 3 + 1: n in [1..100]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 01 2018
