A342512 a(n) is the number of substrings of the binary representation of n that are instances of the Zimin word Z_k, where k = A342510(n). 3

COMMENTS

This value of k is chosen so that Z_k is the largest Zimin word that the binary expansion of n does not avoid.

FORMULA

a(n) = A342511(n, A342510(n)).

EXAMPLE

For n = 121, the binary expansion is "1111001", which avoids the Zimin word Z_3 = ABACABA, but does not avoid the Zimin word Z_2 = ABA. In particular, there are a(121) = 7 substrings that are instances of Z_2:

(111)1001 with A = 1 and B = 1,

1(111)001 with A = 1 and B = 1,

(1111)001 with A = 1 and B = 11,

111(1001) with A = 1 and B = 00,

11(11001) with A = 1 and B = 100,

1(111001) with A = 1 and B = 1100, and

(1111001) with A = 1 and B = 11100.
