COMMENTS

In reference to program code, 2baseiseq[X](n) = ((-1)^n)*A001353(n) (a(n)^2 + 1 is a perfect square.) 1tesseq[X](n) = (-1^(n+1))*A097948(n)

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-4, 0, 4, 1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (x^2+x+1)/((1-x)*(x+1)*(x^2+4*x+1)).

Floor(((2 + sqrt(3))^n + (2 - sqrt(3))^n)/4) produces this sequence with a different offset and without signs. - James R. Buddenhagen, May 20 2010

Define c(n) = a(n) - 4*a(n+1) - a(n+2) and d(n) = -a(n) - 4*a(n+1) - a(n+2); Conjectures: I: c(2n) = 24*A076139(n); (Triangular numbers that are one-third of another triangular number) II: c(2n+1) = -A011943(n+1); (Numbers n such that any group of n consecutive integers has integral standard deviation) III: d(2n) = -2; IV: d(2n+1) = -1
