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”).

Index entries for characteristic functions

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

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(1-x) - 1/(1-x^6) = Sum_{k>=0} x^k - x^(6*k).

Recurrence: a(n+6) = a(n), a(0) = 0, a(i) = 1, 1 <= i <= 5.

a(n) = (1/4) * (3 - (-1)^n - (-1)^((n+1)/3) - (-1)^((2n+1)/3)).

a(n) = (((1/3)*(cos(2*n*Pi/3) + 1/2)*(1 + (-1)^n)) - 1)^2. - Paolo P. Lava, Oct 09 2006

From Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 30 2009: (Start)

a(n) = 1 - A079979(n).

a(A047253(n)) = 1, a(A008588(n)) = 0.

A033438(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} a(k)*(n-k). (End)

Dirichlet g.f.: (1 - 1/6^s)*zeta(s). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 19 2011

For the general case: the characteristic function of numbers that are not multiples of m is a(n) = floor((n-1)/m) - floor(n/m) + 1, m, n > 0. - Boris Putievskiy, May 08 2013

a(n) = sign(n mod 6). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 29 2013

a(n) = ceiling(5n/6) - floor(5n/6). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 20 2014
