(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A348162 a(n) is the previous term in binary with 0's and 1's put alternatingly before each digit, starting with 0. 2
0, 0, 2, 38, 9782, 641083190, 2753431335706502966, 50791843174310108512166439539235563318, 17283568615631356151658578642396687258566665947274335391075779120894446085942 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The next term is too large to include.

The actual sequence in binary is 0, 00, 0010, 00100110, ... The 0s at the start of each term are required for the sequence to work.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..8.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 0010;

a(3) = (0010 + 0101 -> 00100110);

a(4) = (00100110 + 01010101 = 0010011000110110).

Full explanation:

Say we have the term 0010.

We get an equal length binary number of alternating 0s and 1s.

In this case it would be 0101, and we interlace them like so:

                0   1   0   1

0010 + 0101 ->    0   0   1   0  -> 00100110

PROG

(Python)

def combine(a, b):

  c = ''

  for i in range(max(len(a), len(b))*2):

   if i%2 == 0:

    if len(a) > i/2:

     c += (a[int(i/2)])

   else:

    if len(b) > i/2:

     c += (b[int(i/2)])

  return c

x = '0'

while True:

  x = combine(combine(len(x)*'0', len(x)*'1')[:len(x)], x)

(Python)

from itertools import islice

def A348162(): # generator of terms

    s = '0'

    while True:

        yield int(s, 2)

        s = ''.join(x+y for x, y in zip('01'*((len(s)+1)//2), s))

A348162_list = list(islice(A348162(), 9)) # Chai Wah Wu, Nov 19 2021

(PARI) a(n) = my(ret=0, s=1); for(i=2, n, ret += 1<<s + ret<<(s<<=1)); ret; \\ Kevin Ryde, Nov 19 2021
