COMMENTS

See A105968 for a similar sequence. Observe the four periodic sequences (1,1,1,1,); (-1,-1,-1,-1); (1,-1,1,-1,); (-1,1,-1,1,); (a(n)) is the (Type 1A) jbasejfor-transform of the periodic sequence (1,1,1,1) with respect to the floretion given in the program code. A109438 is the (Type 1A) jbasejfor-transform of the periodic sequence (-1,-1,-1,-1) with respect to the floretion given in the program code. A001834 is the (Type 1A) jbasejfor-transform of the periodic sequence (1,-1,1,-1) with respect to the floretion given in the program code. A102871 is the (Type 1A) jbasejfor-transform of the periodic sequence (-1,1,-1,1) with respect to the floretion given in the program code.

FORMULA

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

Equals A002530(n)*A002530(n+1). - Zerinvary Lajos, Feb 08 2007

a(-1 - n) = -a(n). a(2*n) = A011916(n). a(2*n + 1) = -A011916(-1 -n). - Michael Somos, Jul 27 2012

6*a(n) = A001353(n)+A001353(n+1)-(-1)^n. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 07 2016

EXAMPLE
