FORMULA Period 24. From Chai Wah Wu, Jul 17 2016: (Start) a(n) = a(n-1) - a(n-4) + a(n-5) - a(n-8) + a(n-9) - a(n-12) + a(n-13) - a(n-16) + a(n-17) - a(n-20) + a(n-21) for n > 21. G.f.: x*(-3*x^20 - x^19 + x^17 - 2*x^16 - 2*x^12 + x^11 - x^9 - 3*x^8 - 4*x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x - 4)/((x - 1)*(x^4 + 1)*(x^2 - x + 1)*(x^2 + x + 1)*(x^4 - x^2 + 1)*(x^8 - x^4 + 1)). (End) CROSSREFS Cf.
