COMMENTS

First differences are (1,2,2), repeat, with period 3 (A130196). - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 03 2015

Also numbers k such that k*(k+2)*(k+4) is divisible by 5. - Bruno Berselli, Dec 28 2017

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,1,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(5*(n-1)/3). - Gary Detlefs, Feb 20 2010

a(n) = 2*n - floor(n/3) - (n^2 mod 3), with offset 0. - Gary Detlefs, Mar 19 2010

G.f.: x^2*(1 + 2*x + 2*x^2)/(1 - x)^2/(1 + x + x^2). - Colin Barker, Feb 17 2012

a(n) = n + floor(2*(n-1)/3) - 1. - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Sep 18 2012

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 14 2016: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n>4.

a(n) = 5*n/3 - 2 + 2*sin(2*n*Pi/3)/(3*sqrt(3)).

a(3*k) = 5*k-2, a(3*k-1) = 5*k-4, a(3*k-2) = 5*k-5. (End)

E.g.f.: 2 + (5*x - 6)*exp(x)/3 + 2*sin(sqrt(3)*x/2)*(cosh(x/2) - sinh(x/2))/(3*sqrt(3)). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jun 14 2016
