COMMENTS

Gamma(n) is used to compute coefficients in series expansion of mock theta function f(q) via A[n]==Sum[P[r]gamma[n-r],{r,0,n}], with P the partition function A000041.

Convolution of this sequence and A000041 is A000025. - Michael Somos, Jun 19 2003

FORMULA

G.f.: 1 + 4 * Sum_{k>0} (-1)^k * q^(k*(3*k + 1)/2) / (1 + q^k). - Michael Somos, Jun 19 2003

a(n) = 4 * A096661(n) if n>0.

EXAMPLE

1 - 4*x^2 + 4*x^3 - 4*x^4 + 4*x^5 - 4*x^6 + 8*x^7 - 4*x^8 - 4*x^10 + 8*x^11 - 4*x^12 - ...

PROG
