FORMULA

G.f.: Prod_{k>0} (1-x^{5k-2})(1-x^{5k-3})/((1-x^{5k-1})(1-x^{5k-4})).

G.f.: (Sum_{k in Z} (-1)^k * x^((5*k + 1) * k/2)) / (Sum_{k in Z} (-1)^k * x^((5*k + 3) * k/2)). - Michael Somos, Dec 13 2002

Euler transform of period 5 sequence [1, -1, -1, 1, 0, ...]. - Michael Somos, Dec 13 2002

G.f. is reciprocal of that for the Rogers-Ramanujan continued fraction r(tau) - see A007325.

Expansion of f(-x^2, -x^3) / f(-x, -x^4) in powers of x where f(,) is Ramanujan's two-variable theta function. - Michael Somos, Aug 07 2014

a(0) = 1, a(n) = (1/n)*Sum_{k=1..n} A109091(k)*a(n-k) for n > 0. - Seiichi Manyama, Apr 01 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + x - x^3 + x^5 + x^6 - x^7 - 2*x^8 + 2*x^10 + 2*x^11 - x^12 - ...

G.f. = 1/q + q^4 - q^14 + q^24 + q^29 - q^34 - 2*q^39 + 2*q^49 + 2*q^54 - q^59 + ...
