%N For any n > 0: consider the different ways to split the binary representation of 2*n+1 into two nonempty parts, say with value x and y; a(n) is the least possible value of x * y.

%e For n=42:
%e  the binary representation of 85 is "1010101",
%e  there are 6 ways to split it:
%e  "1" and "010101": x=1 and y=21: 1 * 21 = 21,
%e  "10" and "10101": x=2 and y=21: 2 * 21 = 42,
%e  "101" and "0101": x=5 and y=5: 5 * 5 = 25,
%e  "1010" and "101": x=10 and y=5: 10 * 5 = 50,
%e  "10101" and "01": x=21 and y=1: 21 * 1 = 21,
%e  "101010" and "1": x=42 and y=1: 42 * 1 = 42,
%e  hence a(42) = 21.
