FORMULA

Expansion of q * ((eta(q^2) / eta(q^6))^6 - 27 * (eta(q^6) / eta(q^2))^6) in powers of q^2. - Michael Somos, Jun 14 2015

G.f. is a period 1 Fourier series which satisfies f(-1 / (12 t)) = -1 / f(t) where q = exp(2 Pi i t). - Michael Somos, Jun 14 2015

a(n) = A007262(n) - 27 * A121596(n-1). - Michael Somos, Jun 14 2015

Convolution square is A258917. - Michael Somos, Jun 14 2015

a(n) ~ -exp(2*Pi*sqrt(2*n/3)) / (2^(3/4)*3^(1/4)*n^(3/4)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 08 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 - 33*x - 153*x^2 - 713*x^3 - 2550*x^4 - 7479*x^5 - 20314*x^6 + ...

T6a = 1/q - 33*q - 153*q^3 - 713*q^5 - 2550*q^7 - 7479*q^9 - 20314*q^11 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] := SeriesCoefficient[ (QPochhammer[ x] / QPochhammer[ x^3])^6 - 27 x (QPochhammer[ x^3] / QPochhammer[ x])^6, {x, 0, n} ]; (* Michael Somos, Jun 14 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = my(A); if( n<0, 0, A = x * O(x^n); polcoeff( (eta(x + A) / eta(x^3 + A))^6 - 27 * x * (eta(x^3 + A) / eta(x + A))^6, n))}; /* Michael Somos, Jun 14 2015 */

(PARI) { my(q='q+O('q^66), t=(eta(q)/eta(q^3))^6 ); Vec( t - 27*q/t ) } \\ Joerg Arndt, Apr 02 2017
