A327187 For any n >= 0: consider the different ways to split the binary representation of n into two (possibly empty) parts, say with value x and y; a(n) is the least possible value of x XOR y (where XOR denotes the bitwise XOR operator). 3

%N For any n >= 0: consider the different ways to split the binary representation of n into two (possibly empty) parts, say with value x and y; a(n) is the least possible value of x XOR y (where XOR denotes the bitwise XOR operator).

%F a(n) = 0 iff n = 0 or n belongs to A175468.

%e For n=42:

%e - the binary representation of 42 is "101010",

%e - there are 7 ways to split it:

%e - "" and "101010": x=0 and y=42: 0 XOR 42 = 42,

%e - "1" and "01010": x=1 and y=10: 1 XOR 10 = 11,

%e - "10" and "1010": x=2 and y=10: 2 XOR 10 = 8,

%e - "101" and "010": x=5 and y=2: 5 XOR 2 = 7,

%e - "1010" and "10": x=10 and y=2: 10 XOR 2 = 8,

%e - "10101" and "0": x=21 and y=0: 21 XOR 0 = 21,

%e - "101010" and "": x=42 and y=0: 42 XOR 0 = 42,

%e - hence a(42) = 7.

%o (PARI) a(n) = my (v=oo, b=binary(n)); for (w=0, #b, v=min(v, bitxor(fromdigits(b[1..w],2), fromdigits(b[w+1..#b],2)))); v

%Y See A327186 for other variants.

%Y Cf. A175468.
