Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The ratio a(n+1) / a(n) increasingly approximates two constants connected to the golden ratio: (phi+1)/2 = 1.30901699... = A239798 and (phi-1)*2 = 1.23606797... = A134972, according to whether n is odd or even. - Davide Rotondo, Jul 31 2020

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,1,0,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-2)+a(n-4).

a(n) = 2*F((n+1)/2)*(1-(-1)^n)/2+F((n+4)/2)*(1+(-1)^n)/2.

a(2*n) = A000045(n+2); a(2*n+1) = 2*A000045(n+1).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(floor((n-k)/2), floor(k/2)). - Paul Barry, Jul 24 2004

a(n) = A079977(n)+A079977(n-2)+2*A079977(n-1). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 15 2013
