Hofstadter's problem for curious readers


This document summarizes the proofs made during a Coq development in Summer 2015. This development investigates the function G introduced by Hofstadter in his famous "Gödel, Escher, Bach" book as well as a related infinite tree. The left/right flipped variant of this G tree has also been studied here, following Hofstadter's "problem for the curious reader". The initial G function is refered as sequence A005206 in OEIS, while the flipped version is the sequence A123070.
