Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Fixed point of morphism 0 -> 0,1; 1 -> 0,1,0.

This sequence corresponds to the case k = 1 of the Sturmian word S_k(infinity) as defined in A080764. See A171588 for the case k = 2. - Peter Bala, Nov 22 2013

This sequence is the {1->01}-transform of the Sturmian word A080764.  - Clark Kimberling, May 17 2017

FORMULA

From Peter Bala, Nov 22 2013: (Start)

a(n) = floor((n + 2)*(sqrt(2) - 1)) - floor((n + 1)*(sqrt(2) - 1)).

If we read the sequence as the decimal constant C = 0.01010 01010 01010 10010 10010 ... then C = sum {n >= 1} 1/10^floor(n*(1 + sqrt(2))).

The real number 9*C has the simple continued fraction expansion [0; 11, 1010, 10000100, 100000000000100000, 100000000000000000000000000001000000000000, ...], the partial quotients having the form 10^Pell(n)*(1 + 10^Pell(n+1)) = 10^A001333(n+1) + 10^A000129(n) (see Adams and Davison).

A rapidly converging series for C is C = 9*sum {n >= 1} 10^Pell(2*n-1)*(1 + 10^Pell(2*n))/( (10^Pell(2*n-1) - 1)*(10^Pell(2*n+1) - 1) ): for example, the first 10 terms of the series give a rational approximation to C accurate to more than 130 million decimal places. Compare with the Fibonacci words A005614 and A221150. (End)
