COMMENTS

This is the main sequence of a family of sequences starting at a(0)=A and a(1)=B, continuing a(3,...)= 2B, 2B, 4B, 4B, 8B, 8B, 16B, 16B, 32B, 32B, .. such that the absolute values of the 2nd differences, abs(a(n+2)2*a(n+1)+a(n)), equal the original sequence. Alternatively starting at a(0)=a(1)=1 gives A016116.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*a(n2), n>2.
O.g.f.: x*(1+2*x)/(12*x^2).  R. J. Mathar, Jul 16 2008
a(n) = A016116(n)  A000007(n), that is, a(0)=0, a(n)=A016116(n) for n>=1  Bruno Berselli, Apr 13 2011
First differences: a(n+1)a(n)=A131575(n).
Second differences: A131575(n+1)A131575(n)= (1)^n*a(n).
