COMMENTS

Eigensequence of a triangle with nonnegative integers interlaced with zeros (1, 0, 2, 0, 3, ...) as the right and left borders, with the rest zeros. - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 01 2016

Reinhard Zumkeller, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,3,0,-3,0,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = ((((-1)^(n+1))+1)/4)(n+1) - ((((-1)^(n+1))-1)/8)n^2 - Sam Alexander

G.f.: (1+x-x^2+x^3)/((1-x)^3(1+x)^3).

a(n) = if(n mod 2, (n+1)/2, (n/2)^2). - Gerald Hillier, Sep 25 2008

a(n) = floor((n+1) / 2) ^ (2 - n mod 2). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 15 2011

E.g.f.: (x + 2)*(sinh(x) + x*cosh(x))/4. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Aug 02 2016

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + x^2 + 2*x^3 + 4*x^4 + 3*x^5 + 9*x^6 + 4*x^7 + 16*x^8 + ...
