COMMENTS

The continued fraction of the number obtained by reading A012245 as a ternary fraction.

Except for the first term, the only values that occur in this sequence are 1,2,3,4, and values 3^((m-1)*m!)-1 for m > 1. The probability of occurence P(a(n) = k) are given by:

P(a(n) = 1) = 3/8,

P(a(n) = 2) = 1/8,

P(a(n) = 3) = 1/8,

P(a(n) = 4) = 1/8 and

P(a(n) = 3^((m-1)*m!)-1) = 2^-(m+1) for m > 1.

More generally it seems that for any base > 2, P(a(n) <= base+1) = 3/4, P(a(n) > base+1) = 1/4, and P(a(n) = base^((m-1)*m!)-1) = 2^-(m+1) for m > 1.

FORMULA

a(n) = 1 if and only if n in {floor(8*n/3) + A317627(n) | n > 0}.

a(n) = 2 if and only if n in {8*n - 10 + 3*A089013(n-1) | n > 0}.

a(n) = 3 if and only if n in {16*n - 11 | n > 0} union {16*n - 6 | n > 0}.

a(n) = 4 if and only if n in {16*n - 14 | n > 0} union {16*n - 3 | n > 0}.

a(n) = 3^((m-1)*m!)-1 iff n in {2^m*(1+k*4) - 1 | k >= 0} union {2^m*(3+k*4) | k >= 0} for m > 1.
