COMMENTS

In terms of the repetition convolution operator #, where (sequence A) # (sequence B) = the sequence consisting of A(n) copies of B(n), then this sequence is the repetition selfconvolution (A000217(n)0) # (A000217(n)0). Over the set of positive infinite integer sequences, # gives a nonassociative noncommutative groupoid with a left identity (A000012) but no right identity, where the left identity is also a right nullifier and idempotent.

FORMULA

a(1) = 1, for n>1: a(A000217(n)1) = a(A000217(n)) = ... = a(A000217(n+1)2) = A000217(n).
