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”).

COMMENTS

A floretion-generated sequence relating to the Jacobsthal sequence A001045 as well as to A095342 (Number of elements in n-th string generated by a Kolakoski(5,1) rule starting with a(1)=1). (a(n)) may be seen as the result of a certain transform of the natural numbers (see program code).

FORMULA

G.f. (2x+1)/((1-2x)(x+1)^2); Superseeker results: a(n) + a(n+1) = A001045(n+3); a(n+1) - a(n) = A095342(n+1); a(n+2) - a(n+1) - a(n) = A053088(n+1) = A034299(n+1) - A034299(n); a(n) + 2a(n+1) + a(n+2) = 2^(n+3); a(n+2) - 2a(n+1) + a(n) = A053088(n+1) - A053088(n); a(n+2) - a(n) = A001045(n+4) - A001045(n+3) = A052953(n+3) - A052953(n+2) = A026644(n+2) - A026644(n+1);

a(n)=sum{k=0..n+2, (-1)^(n-k)*C(n+2, k)phi(phi(3^k))}; a(n)=sum{k=0..n+2, (-1)^(n-k)*C(n+2, k)(2*3^k/9+C(1, k)/3+4*C(0, k)/9)}; a(n)=sum{k=0..n+2, J(n-k+3)((-1)^(k+1)-2C(1, k)+4C(0, k))} where J(n)=A001045(n); a(n)=A113954(n+2). - Paul Barry, Nov 09 2005
