COMMENTS

Inversion of the periodic sequence with initial period (1,4,-1,-4). Sequence appears to have the property: for m > n, if s divides both a(n) and a(m) then s also divides a(2*m-n). Ex. 23 divides both a(3) = 23 and a(25) = 1989990245; 23 also divides a(2*25-3) = a(47) = 185518234185384428 = (2)^2*(23)*(131)*(15393149202239).
