It looks like he is trying to say k -> 2^n-k, where the k on the right
is the current a(n) and the k on the left is a(n+1).
A better way to state this is
a(n+1) = 2^n - a(n) for n>0, a(0)=0
(which I am surprised to find missing from the formula section, or
maybe I just didn't look hard enough).
This is equivalent to the comment by Amarnath Murthy...
Sums of pair of consecutive terms give all powers of 2 in increasing
order. - Amarnath Murthy (amarnath_murthy(AT)yahoo.com), Aug 15 2002
