COMMENTS

Ppositions in the game of Nim are tuples of numbers with a NimSum equal to zero. (0,1,1,0,0) is considered different from (1,0,1,0,0).
a(2^n1) = 2^(4n).


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..33.

FORMULA

If b = floor(log_2(n)) is the number of digits in the binary representation of n and c = n + 1  2^b, then a(n) = 2^(4*b) + 10*2^(2*b)*c^2 + 5*c^4.


EXAMPLE

If the largest number is not more than 1, then there should be an even number of piles of size 1. We can choose the first four piles to be either 0 or 1, then the last pile is uniquely defined. Thus, a(1)=16.
