COMMENTS
Start with 0 and apply the morphism 0->011 and 1->010 repeatedly.
This sequence draws the Sierpinski gasket, when iterating the following odd-even drawing rule: If "1" then draw a segment forward, if "0" then draw a segment forward and turn 120 degrees right if in odd position or left if in even position.
From Dimitri Hendriks, Jun 29 2010: (Start)
This sequence is the first difference of the Mephisto Waltz A064990, i.e., a(n) = A064990(n) + A064990(n+1), where '+' is addition modulo 2.
This sequence can also be generated as a Toeplitz word: First consider the periodic word 0,1,$,0,1,$,0,1,$,... and then fill the gaps $ by the bitwise negation of the sequence itself: 0,1,_1_,0,1,_0_,0,1,_0_,.... See the Allouche/Bacher reference for a precise definition of Toeplitz sequences. (End)
From Joerg Arndt, Jan 21 2013: (Start)
Identical to the morphism 0-> 011010010, 1->011010011 given on p. 100 of the Fxtbook (see link), because 0 -> 011 -> 011010010 and 1 -> 010 -> 011010011.
This sequence gives the turns (by 120 degrees) of the R9-dragon curve (displayed on p. 101) which can be rendered as follows:
[Init] Set n=0 and direction=0.
[Draw] Draw a unit line (in the current direction). Turn left/right if a(n) is zero/nonzero respectively.
[Next] Set n=n+1 and goto (draw).
(End)
