COMMENTS

B(n+2) = -B(n)*((n+2)*(n+1)/(4pi^2))*z(n+2)/z(n) = -B(n)*((n+2)*(n+1)/(4*Pi^2)) * sum_{j>=1} [ a(j)/j^(n+2) ]

Apart from signs also Sum_{d|n} core(d)^2*mu(n/d) where core(x) is the squarefree part of x. - Benoit Cloitre, May 31 2002

FORMULA

Multiplicative with a(p^e) = 1-p^2.

a(n) = Sum_{d|n} mu(d)*d^2.

abs(a(n)) = prod(p prime divides n, p^2-1 ) [Jon Perry, Aug 24 2010]

From Wolfdieter Lang, Jun 16 2011: (Start)

Dirichlet g.f.: zeta(s)/zeta(s-2).

a(n) = J_{-2}(n)*n^2, with the Jordan function J_k(n), with J_k(1):=1. See the Apostol reference, p. 48. exercise 17. (End)

a(prime(n)) = -A084920(n). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 28 2011

EXAMPLE

a(3) = -8 because the divisors of 3 are {1, 3} and mu(1)*1^2 + mu(3)*3^2 = -8.

a(4) = -3 because the divisors of 4 are {1, 2, 4} and mu(1)*1^2 + mu(2)*2^2 + mu(4)*4^2 = -3

e.g. a(15) = 3^2-1 * 5^2-1 = 8*24 = 192 [Jon Perry, Aug 24 2010]

G.f. = x - 3*x^2 - 8*x^3 - 3*x^4 - 24*x^5 + 24*x^6 - 48*x^7 - 3*x^8 - 8*x^9 + ...

MAPLE

Jinvk := proc(n, k) local a, f, p ; a := 1 ; for f in ifactors(n)[2] do p := op(1, f) ; a := a*(1-p^k) ; end do: a ; end proc:

A046970 := proc(n) Jinvk(n, 2) ; end proc: # R. J. Mathar, Jul 04 2011
