FORMULA

a(n) = (-2)*(a(n-1)+a(n-2)), n>1 ; a(0)=1, a(1)=-3. - Philippe Deléham, Nov 19 2008

a(n) = A108520(n)-A108520(n-1). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 11 2012

G.f.: G(0)*(1 - x)/(2*(1 + x)), where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x*(k+1)/(x*(k+2) - 1/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jun 20 2013
