COMMENTS

Suppose that b = (b(0), b(1), ... ) is an increasing sequence of positive integers satisfying b(0) = 1 and b(n+1) <= 2*b(n) for n >= 0.  Let B(n) be the least b(m) >= n.  Let R(0) = 1, and for n > 0, let R(n) = B(n) - R(B(n) - n).  The resulting sum of the form R(n) = B(n) - B(m(1)) + B(m(2)) - ... + ((-1)^k)*B(k) is introduced here as the minimal alternating b-representation of n.  The sum B(n) + B(m(2)) + ... we call the positive part of R(n), and the sum B(m(1)) + B(m(3)) + ... , the nonpositive part of R(n).  The number ((-1)^k)*B(k) is the trace of n.

If b(n) = F(n+2), where F = A000045, then the sum is the minimal alternating Fibonacci-representation of n.

FORMULA

R(F(k)^2) = F(2k-1) - F(2k-3) + F(2k-5) - ... + d*F(5) + (-1)^k, where d = (-1)^(k+1).

EXAMPLE

R(0) = 0

R(1) = 1

R(2) = 2

R(3) = 3

R(4) = 5 - 1

R(9) = 13 - 5 + 1

R(25) = 34 - 13 + 5 - 1

R(64) = 89 - 34 + 13 - 5 + 1

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] = Fibonacci[n]; ff = Table[f[n], {n, 1, 70}];

s[n_] := Table[f[n + 2], {k, 1, f[n]}];

h[0] = {1}; h[n_] := Join[h[n - 1], s[n]];

g = h[12]; r[0] = {0};

r[n_] := If[MemberQ[ff, n], {n}, Join[{g[[n]]}, -r[g[[n]] - n]]];

Flatten[Table[r[n], {n, 0, 60}]]
