I'm away from home and don't have access to my copy of Mathematica,
otherwise I'd do this myself.
How many binary digits are there in Floor [ (3/2) ^n ] ?
The first 16 values that I've computed by hand seem to agree with A005378.
ex. for n=0 Floor[ (3/2)^0]=1 which is 1 in binary, so a(0)=1
for n=1 Floor[3/2]=1, which is 1 in binary, so a(1)=1
for n=2 Floor[9/4]=2, which is 10 in binary, so a(2)=2
I'd be very pleasantly surprised if this continues since the quantity being
calculated is related to several unsolved problems.
If anyone out there has a few minutes to continue the calculations I'd
appreciate it.
