COMMENTS

Arises from Gleason's theorem on selfdual codes: 1/((1x^2)*(1x^8)) is the Molien series for the real 2dimensional Clifford group (a dihedral group of order 16) of genus 1.
Count of odd numbers between consecutive quartersquares, A002620. Oppermann's conjecture states that for each count there will be at least one prime.  Fred Daniel Kline, Sep 10 2011
Number of partitions into parts 1 and 4.  Joerg Arndt, Jun 01 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = floor((n+3)/4), n>0;
a(n) = A010766(n+4, 4).
a(n) = {Sum{k=0..n, (k+1)cos(pi*(nk)/2}+1/4[cos(n*Pi/2)+1+(1)^n] }/2  Paolo P. Lava, Oct 09 2006
Also, a(n) = ceiling((n+1)/4), n >= 0.  Mohammad K. Azarian, May 22 2007
a(n) = Sum_{i=0..n} A121262(i) = n/4 +5/8 +(1)^n/8 + A057077(n)/4.  R. J. Mathar, Mar 14 2011
a(x,y):= floor(x/2) + floor(y/2)  x where x=A002620(n) and y=A002620(n+1), n>2.  Fred Daniel Kline, Sep 10 2011
a(0)=1, a(1)=1, a(2)=1, a(3)=1, a(4)=2, a(n) = a(n1) + a(n4)  a(n5).  Harvey P. Dale, Feb 19 2012
