COMMENTS

a(2n+1) has period 6, i.e., if n == 1 (mod 2) then a(n+12) = a(n). A.H.M. Smeets, Jan 23 2018

FORMULA

If n==0 (mod 3) a(n)=0; for p ==1 or 11 (mod 12) (i.e., p>3 in A038874), a(p)=+1; for p==2, 5 or 7 (mod 12) (i.e., p in A038875), a(p)=-1. - Benoit Cloitre, Jan 03 2004

From A.H.M. Smeets, Aug 01 2018: (Start)

Conjecture:

a(n) = 0 if and only if (n mod 3 = 0),

a(n) = 1 if (n mod 12 = 1 or n mod 12 = 11 or n mod 48 = 4 or n mod 48 = 44),

a(n) = -1 if (n mod 12 = 5 or n mod 12 = 7 or n mod 48 = 20 or n mod 48 = 28),

a(2) = -1, a(12*n+10) = -a(12*n+2) and a(12*n+14) = a(12*n+10) for n >= 0,

a(24*n+8) = -a(12*n+4) and a(24*n+16) = -a(12*n+4) for n >= 0. (End)

From A.H.M. Smeets, Aug 01 2018: (Start)

a(2*n+1) = 1 if and only if (n mod 6 = 0 or n mod 6 = 5),

a(2*n+1) = -1 if and only if (n mod 6 = 2 or n mod 6 = 3),

a(2*n+1) = 0 if and only if n mod 3 = 1,

a(2*n) = -a(n). (End)
