COMMENTS

Roughly analogous to maximal number of comparisons for sorting n elements by binary insertion (A001855).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..55.

Wikipedia, Akra-Bazzi method. As of 10 Nov 2006, this article correctly gives the asymptotic, but incorrectly refers to merge-sort rather than binary insertion sort.

FORMULA

a(0) = 1, for n>1: a(floor(n/3)) + a(floor(2n/3)) + n + 1.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1 by definition.

a(1) = a(floor(1/3)) + a(floor(2/3)) + 1 + 1 = a(0) + a(0) + 2 = 4.

a(2) = a(floor(2/3)) + a(floor(4/3)) + 2 + 1 = a(0) + a(1) + 3 = 8.

a(3) = a(floor(3/3)) + a(floor(6/3)) + 3 + 1 = a(1) + a(2) + 4 = 16.

a(4) = a(floor(4/3)) + a(floor(8/3)) + 4 + 1 = a(1) + a(2) + 5 = 17.

a(5) = a(floor(5/3)) + a(floor(10/3)) + 5 + 1 = a(1) + a(3) + 6 = 26.

a(6) = a(floor(6/3)) + a(floor(12/3)) + 6 + 1 = a(2) + a(4) + 7 = 32.

MAPLE

A123535 := proc(n) options remember ; if n = 0 then RETURN(1) ; else RETURN(A123535(floor(n/3))+A123535(floor(2*n/3))+n+1) ; fi ; end: for n from 1 to 100 do printf("%d, ", A123535(n)) ; od : # R. J. Mathar, Jan 13 2007
