FORMULA

G.f.: (4*x^4-x^3-x^2-x+3)/((x-1)^2*(x+1)*(x^2+1)). - Ralf Stephan, Nov 01 2003

a(n) = n + (-1)^n + 2*(-1)^floor(n/2). - Mitchell Harris, Jan 10 2005

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 06 2016: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-4) - a(n-5) for n>4.

a(n) = n + (-1)^n + 2*(-1)^((2*n-1+(-1)^n)/4).

a(n) = A004442(A004443(n)) = A004443(A004442(n)).

a(a(n)) = n; n+a(n) = A004442(n) + A004443(n). (End)
