FORMULA

a(n) = (1/n) * Sum_{ L(n, k) : n+k = 1 mod 4}, where L(n, k) = Sum_{ mu(d)*{binomial(n/d, k/d)} : d|gcd(n, k)}.

MATHEMATICA

L[n_, k_] := Sum[ MoebiusMu[d]*Binomial[n/d, k/d], {d, Divisors[GCD[n, k]]}]/n;

a[n_] := Sum[ If[ Mod[n+k, 4] == 1, L[n, k], 0], {k, 0, n}];

Table[a[n], {n, 1, 32}]

PROG

(PARI)

L(n, k) = sumdiv(gcd(n, k), d, moebius(d) * binomial(n/d, k/d) );

a(n) = sum(k=0, n, if( (n+k)%4==1, L(n, k), 0 ) ) / n;
