FORMULA

Contribution of Michael Somos, Aug 31 2012: (Start)

Expansion of -11 + (1 + 3*F)^2 * (1/F + 1 + 3*F) where F = eta(q^3) * eta(q^33) / (eta(q) * eta(q^11)) (= g.f. of A128663) in powers of q.

G.f. is Fourier series of a level 11 modular function. f(-1 / (11 t)) = f(t) where q = exp(2 Pi i t).

A000521(n) = a(n) + 11 * a(11*n) unless n=0. [Atkin (1967) p. 22]

a(n) = A003295(n) = A058205(n) = A128525(n) = A134784(n) unless n=0. (End)

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1/q - 5 + 17*q + 46*q^2 + 116*q^3 + 252*q^4 + 533*q^5 + 1034*q^6 + ...
