COMMENTS

Previous name was: The Golden Book sequence.

Golden Book is a weighted binary pattern, which instead of 0 and 1 uses distance elements, namely 2 and 3 units long. All the horizontal junction points between the elements (2 and 2, 2 and 3, 3 and 2, or 3 and 3) are connected by a straight line on adjacent levels if the vertical distance between those points is sqrt(2) or less. The weighted binary pattern is:

L(0): 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, ...

L(1): 2, 2, 3, 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, ...

L(2): 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, ...

...

Starting from the level 2 all single levels of the Golden Book have always these 5 phases: |||, /\ |, / /, | \/, | |. A combination of any 2 adjacent levels (2..n) have 11 phases, etc.

FORMULA

Full cycle length: 2 + 3*A001045(0)..A001045(L-1) + (1/2)*(-1^L + 1 + 3*2^(L-1)) + A001045(0)..A001045(L); L, level (0..n).

From Colin Barker, Oct 11 2014: (Start)

a(n) = 23*2^(n-3) for n > 2.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) for n > 3.

G.f.: -x*(x^2 + x + 5) / (2*x-1). (End)

PROG

(PHP)

$a = array(0 => 2);

$m = array(1 => 1, 2 => 0, 3 => 0, 4 => 0);

for ($n = 1; $n < 20; $n++) { $a[$n] = 2 * $a[$n - 1] + ($m[pow(2, $n) % 5]++ ? 0 : 1); }

print_r($a); /* Armands Strazds, Oct 30 2014 */

(Python) print([int(23*2**(n-4)) for n in range(1, 34)]) # Karl V. Keller, Jr., Sep 28 2020
