COMMENTS

One of several sequences, apparently all of the form a(n+4) = a(n+1) - a(n), which appear to "spiral outwards" when plotted against each other (see A110061-64). In reference to the FAMP program code, A017817 is also in this same batch of sequences and satisfies the same recurrence relation.
