COMMENTS

A heuristic argument suggests that, as n tends to infinity, a(n)/n converges to 4.  Stefan Steinerberger, May 17 2007
These numbers may be called primitive evil numbers because every evil number is a power of twice one of these numbers. Note that the difference between consecutive terms is either 2, 4, or 6.  T. D. Noe, Jun 06 2007
A132680(a(n)) = A132680((a(n)1)/2) + 2.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 26 2007
If m is in the sequence, then so is 2m1 because in binary, m is x1 and 2m1 is x01. Presumably the numbers that generate the whole sequence by application of n > 2n1 are the evil numbers times 4 plus 3.  Ralf Stephan, May 25 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*A000069(n) + 1. a(n) is 1 plus twice odious numbers. a(n) = A128309(n) + 1. a(n) is 1 plus odious even numbers.
a(n) = 4n + O(1).  Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 21 2013
a(n) = A001969(1+A000069(n)) = A277902(A277823(n)).  Antti Karttunen, Nov 05 2016

CROSSREFS

This sequence is the intersection of A001969 (Evil numbers: even number of 1's in binary expansion.) and A005408 (The odd numbers: a(n) = 2n+1.) A093688 (Numbers n such that all divisors of n, excluding the divisor 1, have an even number of 1's in their binary expansions) is a subsequence.
Cf. A092246 (odd odious numbers).
Column 2 of A277880, positions of 1's in A277808 (2's in A277822).
Cf. A000069, A128309, A277823, A277902.
