COMMENTS

See A318439 for the imaginary part of h.

See A318479 for the square of the modulus of h.

The function h corresponds to the interpretation of the binary representation of a number in base -1+i and defines a bijection from the nonnegative integers to the Gaussian integers.

The function h has nice fractal features (see scatterplot in Links section).

This sequence has similarities with A316657.
