Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

May be seen as the jesforrok-transform of the zero-sequence (A000004) with respect to the floretion given in the program code.

Identical to A267459(n+1) for n > 0. - Guenther Schrack, Jun 01 2018

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,0,-2,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 + x - 2*x^2 + x^3 + x^4)/((x+1)*(1-x)^3); a(n+2) - 2*a(n+1) + a(n) = (-1)^(n+1)*A084099(n).

a(n) = (1/4)*(2*n^2 + 9 - (-1)^n ), n>1. - Ralf Stephan, Jun 01 2007

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + 3*x + 4*x^2 + 7*x^3 + 10*x^4 + 15*x^5 + 20*x^6 + 27*x^7 + ... - Michael Somos, Jun 26 2018
