COMMENTS

The g.f. is the transform of the g.f. of A006053(n+1) under the Chebyshev mapping G(x)-> (1/(1+x^2))G(x/(1+x^2)). The denominator of the g.f. is a paramaterisation of the Alexander polynomial of 7_1. It is also the 14th cyclotomic polynomial.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+x^2)^2/(1-x+x^2-x^3+x^4-x^5+x^6); a(n)=sum{k=0..floor(n/2), binomial(n-k, k)(-1)^k*A006053(n-2k+1)}.
