COMMENTS

If 3 divides a(n) then a(n)/3 also appears in this sequence. Also the inverse is true: if a(n) appears, then (3^k)*a(n), for all k>=0, appears as well.

Note that a(n) usually does not consist only of 0's and 1's - it can be shown that in this case a(n)=3^k, for some k>=0.

So, a(n)^2 belongs to A005836. - Michel Marcus, Nov 12 2012

EXAMPLE

For n=16 we have 16^2=256="100111" (in base 3). Also (16*3)^2="10011100", (16*3^2)^2="1001110000", etc.
