A120880 G.f. satisfies: A(x) = A(x^3)*(1 + 2*x + x^2); thus a(n) = 2^A062756(n), where A062756(n) is the number of 1's in the ternary expansion of n. 4

More generally, if g.f. of {a(n)} satisfies: A(x) = A(x^3)*(1 + b*x + c*x^2), then a(n) = b^A062756(n)*c^A081603(n), where A062756(n) is the number of 1's and A081603(n) is the number of 2's, in the ternary expansion of n. This sequence is not the same as A059151.
a(n) is the number of entries in the n-th row of Pascal's triangle that are congruent to 1 mod 3 minus the number of entries that are congruent to 2 mod 3. - N. Sato, Jun 22 2007 (see Liu (1991))
This sequence pertains to genotype Punnett square mathematics. Start with X = 1. Each hybrid cross involves the equation X:2X:X. Therefore, the ratio in the first (mono) hybrid cross is X=1:2X=2(1) or 2:X=1; or 1:2:1. When you move up to the next hybridization level, replace the previous cross ratio with X. X now represents 3 numbers—1:2:1. Therefore, the ratio in the second (di) hybrid cross is X = (1:2:1):2X = [2(1):2(2):2(1)] or (2:4:2):X = (1:2:1). Put it together and you get 1:2:1:2:4:2:1:2:1. Each time you move up a hybridization level, replace the previous ratio with X, and use the same equation—X:2X:X to get its ratio. - John Michael Feuk, Dec 10 2011

FORMULA
a((3^n+1)/2) = 2^n; a(n) = a(floor(n/3))*2^[[n (mod 3)] (mod 2)], with a(0)=1. G.f.: A(x) = prod_{n>=0} (1 + x^(3^n))^2. Self-convolution of A039966. Row sums of triangle A117947(n,k) = balanced ternary of C(n,k) mod 3.

Records are 2^n at positions: 0,1,4,13,40,121,...,(3^n-1)/2,... (n>=0).
