COMMENTS

For n>=1 and i=sqrt(-1) let F(n) the n X n matrix of the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) whose element (j,k) equals exp(-2*Pi*i*(j-1)*(k-1)/n)/sqrt(n). The multiplicities of the four eigenvalues 1, i, -1, -i of F(n) are a(n+4), a(n-1), a(n+2), a(n+1), hence a(n+4) + a(n-1) + a(n+2) + a(n+1) = n for n>=1. E.g., the multiplicities of the eigenvalues 1, i, -1, -i of the DFT-matrix F(4) are a(8)=2, a(3)=0, a(6)=1, a(5)=1, summing up to 4. - Franz Vrabec, Jan 21 2005

After initial terms, same as floor(n/2) - floor(n/4). - Jonathan Vos Post, Jan 19 2007

Complement of A010873, since A010873(n)+4*a(n)=n. - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 01 2007

For even values of n, a(n) gives the number of partitions of n into exactly two parts with both parts even. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Feb 06 2013

a(n-4) counts number of partitions of (n) into parts 1 and 4. For example a(11) = 3 with partitions (44111), (41111111), (11111111111). - David Neil McGrath, Dec 04 2014

a(n-4) counts walks (closed) on the graph G(1-vertex; 1-loop, 4-loop) where order of loops is unimportant. - David Neil McGrath, Dec 04 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(n/4), n>=0;

a(n) = ( Sum_{k=0..n} (k+1)*cos(Pi*(n-k)/2}+1/4*(cos(n*Pi/2)+1+(-1)^n) )/2 - 1. - Paolo P. Lava, Oct 09 2006

G.f.: (x^4)/((1-x)*(1-x^4)).

a(n) = (2*n-(3-(-1)^n-2*(-1)^floor(n/2)))/8; also a(n) = (2*n-(3-(-1)^n-2*sin(Pi/4*(2*n+1+(-1)^n))))/8 = (n-A010873(n))/4. - Hieronymus Fischer, May 29 2007

a(n) = -1 + Sum_{k=0..n} ( (1/24)*( -5*(k mod 4) + ((k+1) mod 4) + ((k+2) mod 4) + 7*((k+3) mod 4)) ). - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 20 2007

a(n) = (1/4)*(n-(3-(-1)^n-2*(-1)^((2*n-1+(-1)^n)/4))/2). - Hieronymus Fischer, Jul 04 2007

a(n) = floor((n^4-1)/4*n^3) (n>=1); a(n) = floor((n^4-n^3)/(4*n^3-3*n^2)) (n>=1). - Mohammad K. Azarian, Nov 08 2007

For n>=4, a(n) = floor( log_4( 4^a(n-1) + 4^a(n-2) + 4^a(n-3) + 4^a(n-4) ) ). - Vladimir Shevelev, Jun 22 2010

a(n) = A180969(2,n). - Adriano Caroli, Nov 26 2010

a(n) = A173562(n)-A000290(n); a(n+2) = A035608(n)-A173562(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 21 2010

a(n+1) = A140201(n) - A057353(n+1). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 26 2011

a(n) = ceiling((n-3)/4), n >= 0. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 01 2013

a(n) = (2*n + (-1)^n + 2*sin(Pi*n/2) + 2*cos(Pi*n/2) - 3)/8. - Todd Silvestri, Oct 27 2014

E.g.f.: (x/4 - 3/8)*exp(x) + exp(-x)/8 + (sin(x)+cos(x))/4. - Robert Israel, Oct 30 2014

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-4) - a(n-5) with initial values a(3)=0, a(4)=1, a(5)=1, a(6)=1, a(7)=1. - David Neil McGrath, Dec 04 2014

a(n) = A004526(A004526(n)). - Bruno Berselli, Jul 01 2016
