Duplicate the ternary digits of n, so each 0, 1 or 2 becomes 00, 11 or 22 respectively.

COMMENTS

Also, numbers whose ternary digit runs are all even lengths (including 0 reckoned as no digits at all). Also, change ternary digits 0,1,2 to base 9 digits 0,4,8, and hence numbers which can be written in base 9 using only digits 0,4,8.
Digit duplication 00,11,22 can be compared to A037314 which is 0 above each so 00,01,02, or A208665 which is 0 below each so 00,10,20. Duplication is the sum of these, or any one is a suitable multiple of another (*3, *4, etc).
This sequence is the points on the X=Y diagonal of the ternary Zorder curve (see example table in A163328). The Zorder curve takes a point number p and splits its ternary digits alternately to X and Y coordinates so X(p) = A163325(p) and Y(p) = A163326(p). Duplicate digits in a(n) are the diagonal X(a(n)) = Y(a(n)) = n.

FORMULA

a(n) = 4*Sum_{i=0..k} d[i]*9^i where the ternary expansion of n is n = Sum_{i=0..k} d[i]*3^i with digits d[i]=0,1,2.


EXAMPLE

n=73 is ternary 2201 which duplicates to 22220011 ternary = 8804 base 9 = 6484 decimal.
