%N First differences of A137821 (numbers such that sum( Catalan(k), k=1..2n) = 0 (mod 3)).

%C For the initial term, we use A137821(0)=0 (cf. formula).

%C Sequence A122983 lists record values of this one, which occur at index 2^j (cf. formula). The fact that these values roughly grow by a factor 3 is explained by the fact that these values are given as the sum of all preceding terms (up to +1 or +2 according to the parity of j, cf. formula).

%C The only values occurring in this sequence are { 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 21, 61, 62, 183, 547, 548, 1641,... } = A137823, consisting of the record values a(2^j) and, for every other one of these (i.e. for even j), its successor a(2^j)+1, occurring first as a(3*2^j).

%C The remarkably simple sequence A137824 (= 1,3,2, 4,12,8,...: pattern 1,3,2 multiplied by powers of 4) gives the index at which the value A137823(m) first occurs. - M. F. Hasler, Mar 15 2008

%C The PARI code given here (function A137822(n)) allows one to calculate hundreds of terms of A107755 in a few microseconds. - _M. F. Hasler_, Mar 15 2008
