Each bisection is strictly monotonically increasing (see formula).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n - 2) + a(n/2) for even n >= 2; a(0) = 0.

a(n) = 2*a(n - 2) - a((n - 3)/2) + a(n - 1) for odd n >= 5; a(1) = 1; a(3) = 2.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = a(0) + a(1) + a(2) + a(3) = 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 4.

a(7) = a(3) + a(4) + a(5) + a(6) = 2 + 2 + 5 + 4 = 13.

a(8) = a(0) + a(1) + a(2) + a(3) + a(4) = 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 = 6.

a(9) = a(4) + a(5) + a(6) + a(7) + a(8) = 2 + 5 + 4 + 13 + 6 = 30.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = if(n < 2, n, sum(k = 0, n\2, a(k + (n%2)*(n - 1)/2))) \\ or, much faster for large n:

a = [0, 1]; for(n = 2, 50, a = concat(a, sum(k = 0, n\2, a[k + 1 + (n%2)*(n - 1)/2]))); a

Haskell)

a238834 n = a238834_list !! n

a238834_list = 0 : 1 : f True (drop 2 a008619_list) [1, 0] where

   f p (t:ts) xs = y : f (not p) ts (y:xs)

                   where y = sum $ take t (if p then reverse xs else xs)
