Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

First differences of A003417.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..60.

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-1,-1,1,1,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-x)(2+x+2x^2-3x^3-x^4+x^6)/(1-2x^3+x^6);

a(n)=2*C(0,n)-C(1,n)+2*sin(2*pi*(n-1)/3)*floor((2n-1)/3)/sqrt(3). [Sign corrected by M. F. Hasler, May 01 2013]

a(0)=2, a(1)=-1, for n>0: a(3n-1)=2n-1, a(3n)=1-2n, a(3n+1)=0. - M. F. Hasler, May 01 2013

PROG

(PARI) A120691(n)={n<2 && return(2-3*n); n=divrem(n-1, 3); if(n[2], -(1+n[1]*2)*(-1)^n[2])} \\ - M. F. Hasler, May 01 2013
