FORMULA

G.f.: nu(q) = sum for n >= 0 of q^(n(n+1))/((1+q)(1+q^3)...(1+q^(2n+1)))

(-1)^n a(n) = number of partitions of n in which even parts are distinct and if k occurs then so does every positive even number less than k

G.f.: 1/(1 + x*(1-x)/(1 + x^2*(1-x^2)/(1 + x^3*(1-x^3)/(1 + x^4*(1-x^4)/(1 + x^5*(1-x^5)/(1 + ...)))))), a continued fraction. - Paul D. Hanna, Jul 09 2013

a(2*n) = A085140(n). a(2*n + 1) = - A053253(n). - Michael Somos, Jul 25 2015

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 - x + 2*x^2 - 2*x^3 + 2*x^4 - 3*x^5 + 4*x^6 - 4*x^7 + 5*x^8 + ...

MATHEMATICA

Series[Sum[q^(n(n+1))/Product[1+q^(2k+1), {k, 0, n}], {n, 0, 9}], {q, 0, 100}]
