COMMENTS

a(n) is also the length of the n-th edge of a staircase which represents the function pi(x) on the first quadrant of the square grid, see A000720.

a(2n-1) is the length of the n-th horizontal edge in the staircase.

a(2n) is the length of the n-th vertical edge in the staircase.

For another version see A230850.

Drawing vertical line segments below the staircase (as shown below) we have that the number of cells in the vertical bars gives A000720.

Drawing horizontal line segments above the staircase we have that the number of cells in the k-th horizontal bar is A006093(k).
