COMMENTS

A000079 is the main entry for this sequence.
Binomial transform of A000035.
Essentially the same as A034008 and A000079.
a(n) = a(n1)th even natural numbers (A005846) for n > 1.  Jaroslav Krizek, Apr 25 2009
Where record values greater than 1 occur in A083662: A000045(n)=A083662(a(n)).  Reinhard Zumkeller, Sep 26 2009
Number of compositions of natural number n into parts >0.
The signed sequence 0, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024,... is the Lucas U(2,0) sequence.  R. J. Mathar, Jan 08 2013
In computer programming, these are the only unsigned numbers such that k&(k1)=0, where & is the bitwise AND operator and numbers are expressed in binary.  Stanislav Sykora, Nov 29 2013
Also the 0additive sequence: a(n) is the smallest number larger than a(n1) which is not the sum of any subset of earlier terms, with initial values {0, 1, 2}.  Robert G. Wilson v, Jul 12 2014
Also the smallest nonnegative superincreasing sequence: each term is larger than the sum of all preceding terms. Indeed, an equivalent definition is a(0)=0, a(n+1)=1+sum_{k=0..n} a(k).  M. F. Hasler, Jan 13 2015

FORMULA

Floor(2^(k1)) with k=1..n.  Robert G. Wilson v
G.f.: x/(12*x); a(n) = (2^n0^n)/2.  Paul Barry, Jan 05 2009
E.g.f.: exp(x)*sinh(x).  Geoffrey Critzer, Oct 28 2012
E.g.f.: x/T(0) where T(k) = 4*k+1  x/(1 + x/(4*k+3  x/(1 + x/T(k+1) ))); (continued fraction).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Mar 17 2013
