Two analogs of Thue-Morse sequence

By Vladimir Shevelev

Abstract

We introduce and study two analogs of one of the best known sequence in Mathematics : Thue-Morse sequence. The first analog is concerned with the parity of number of runs of 1's in the binary representation of nonnegative integers. The second one is connected with the parity of number of 1's in the representation of nonnegative integers in so-called negabinary (or in base $-2).$ We give for them some recurrent and structure formulas and prove that the second $(0,1)$-sequence is cube-free, while the first one is quint-free. Finally we consider several interesting unsolved problems.Comment: 11 pages New Theorem 6 and Sections 8,
