Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Also: the nonpositive integers, listed with offset = 0 and in decreasing order.

An involution: the function is its own inverse, A001489 o A001489 = A001477, the identity function on N = {0, 1, 2, 3, ...}. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 18 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = -n.

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

a(n) = -a(-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Aug 04 2018
