COMMENTS

Inverse of the Jacobsthal sequence (A001045), nearly, since a(A001045(n))=n except for n=1 (see A130250 for another version). a(n)+1 is equal to the partial sum of the Jacobsthal indicator sequence (see A105348).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..100.

FORMULA

a(n)=floor(log_2(3n+1)). Also true: a(n)=A130250(n+1)-1=A130253(n)-1. G.f.: g(x)=1/(1-x)*sum{k>=1, x^A001045(k)}.

EXAMPLE

a(12)=5, since A001045(5)=11<=12, but A001045(6)=21>12.
