COMMENTS

a(n) = a(3n)/a(0) = a(3n+1)/a(1). a(n) mod 2 = A039966(n). Row sums of A117939.

Observation: if this is written as a triangle (see example) then at least the first five row sums coincide with A002001. - Omar E. Pol, Nov 28 2011

FORMULA

G.f.: Product{k>=0, 1+3x^(3^k)}; a(n)=sum{k=0..n, sum{j=0..n, L(C(n,j)/3)*L(C(n-j,k)/3)}} where L(j/p) is the Legendre symbol of j and p.

EXAMPLE

Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Nov 26 2011 (Start):

When written as a triangle this begins:

1,

3,0,

3,9,0,0,0,0,

3,9,0,9,27,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,

3,9,0,9,27,0,0,0,0,9,27,0,27,81,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,...

(End)
