FORMULA

With s = floor(n/2), r = ceiling(n/2) and a(1) = b(1) = 0,

recurrence relation is a(n) = s + b(r) + a(s), b(n) = 2s-1 + a(r).

If n = 2^m then a(n) = 4n+1 - Fibonacci(m+5).

PROG

(PARI)

b(n)={if(n<=1, 0, 2*(n\2) - 1 + a((n+1)\2))}

a(n)={if(n<=1, 0, n\2 + b((n+1)\2) + a(n\2))} \\ Andrew Howroyd, Mar 28 2020
