COMMENTS

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*n1)*(1 + 10^Pell(2*n))/( (10^Pell(2*n1)  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)
