FORMULA

a(n) = 1 + (n mod 4) - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 21 2006

a(n)=A010873(n)+1. Also a(n)=1/2*(5-(-1)^n-2*(-1)^((2n-1+(-1)^n)/4))). G.f.: g(x)=(4x^3+3x^2+2x+1)/(1-x^4)=(4x^5-5x^4+1)/((1-x^4)(1-x)^2). - Hieronymus Fischer, Jun 08 2007

a(n) = (7*(n mod 4)+(n+1 mod 4)+(n+2 mod 4)+(n+3 mod 4))/6 (cf. forms of modular arithmetic of Paolo P. Lava, i.e. see A146094). - Bruno Berselli, Sep 27 2010

a(n) = 5/2 -cos(Pi*n/2) -sin(Pi*n/2) -(-1)^n/2.- R. J. Mathar, Oct 08 2011
