COMMENTS

Length of period of sequences r(k,n) = floor(sinh(1)*k!)  n*floor(sinh(1)*k!/n) when n is fixed.  Benoit Cloitre, Jun 22 2003

FORMULA

O.g.f.: (x+2x^2+4x^3x^5)/(1x^2)^2.  Len Smiley, Dec 05 2001
a(n)*a(n+3) = 4 + a(n+1)*a(n+2).
From Harry J. Smith, Nov 08 2009: (Start)
a(n) = A109043(n), n > 1.
a(n) = 2*A026741(n), n > 1. (End)


EXAMPLE

r(k,7) is sequence 1, 2, 0, 0, 1, 6, 1, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3, 5, 0, 1, 2, 0, 0, 1, 6, 1, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3, 5, 0.... which is periodic with period (1, 2, 0, 0, 1, 6, 1, 1, 3, 2, 2, 3, 5, 0) of length 14 = a(7).


PROG

(PARI) a(n)=if(n<2, 1, if(n%2, 2*n, n))
(PARI) { for (n=1, 1000, a=if (n>1 && n%2, 2*n, n); write("b066043.txt", n, " ", a) ) } \\ Harry J. Smith, Nov 08 2009
