COMMENTS

This sequence differs from A001840 only in four terms preceding it. That is, A001840(n) = a(n+5).

Let b(n) = 2^a(n+1). Then b(1)=b(2)=b(3)=b(4)=1 and b(n)*b(n-4) = b(n-1)*b(n-3) + c(n)*b(n-2)^2, c(3*n)=2, c(3*n+1)=c(3*n+2)=1 for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Oct 18 2018

FORMULA

a(n) = 1 + a(n-1) + a(n-3) - a(n-4) for all n in Z.

G.f.: x*(1-2*x+x^2-x^3+2*x^4)/((1+x+x^2)* (1-x)^3). - Maksym Voznyy (voznyy(AT)mail.ru), Jul 27 2009

a(n) = a(7-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Oct 18 2018

MATHEMATICA

e[1] = 1; e[2] = e[3] = e[4] = e[5] = 0; e[n_] := e[n] = 1 + e[n - 1] + e[n - 3] - e[n - 4]; Table[e[n], {n, 1, 70}]

a[ n_] := Quotient[ Binomial[n - 3, 2], 3]; (* Michael Somos, Oct 18 2018 *)
