Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

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.

FORMULA

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

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

a(n) = 4 * A096661(n) unless n=0.

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 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 - ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_]:= SeriesCoefficient[1 +4 *Sum[(-1)^k*x^(k*(3*k+1)/2)/(1+x^k), {k, Quotient[Sqrt[1 +24*n] - 1, 6]}], {x, 0, n}]; (* Michael Somos, Apr 08 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = if( n<1, n==0, 4 * polcoeff( sum(k=1, (sqrtint(24*n + 1) - 1) \ 6, (-1)^k * x^((3*k^2 + k)/2) / (1 + x^k), x * O(x^n)), n))}; /* Michael Somos, Mar 13 2006 */
