COMMENTS
Also called a "Fibonacci fractal".
Appears to be the same as the "ruler of Fibonaccis" mentioned by Knuth. - N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 03 2012
a(n) is also the number of matches to take away to win in a certain match game (see Rocher et al.).
The frequencies of occurrences of the values in this sequence and A035614 are related by the golden ratio.

FORMULA
a(n) = n if n is a Fibonacci number, else a( n - (largest Fibonacci number < n) ).
a(n) = the value of the (exactly one) digit that turns on between the Fibonacci-base representations of n-1 and n. E.g., from 6 (1001) to 7 (1010), the two's digit turns on.
a(n) = top element of the column of the Wythoff array that contains n.
a(n) = A000045(A035614(n-1) + 2). [Offsets made precise by Peter Munn, Apr 13 2021]
a(n) = A035517(n,0). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 10 2013
EXAMPLE
The Zeckendorf representation of 7 = 5 + 2, so a(7) = 2.
MAPLE

for i from 0 do
if A000045(i) <= n then
a := A000045(i) ;
else
RETURN(a) ;

od:
end:
A139764 := proc(n)
local nResid, prevF ;
nResid := n ;
while true do
prevF := A087172(nResid) ;
if prevF = nResid then
RETURN(prevF) ;
else
nResid := nResid-prevF ;
fi ;
