Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..68.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1, 0, 1, -1).

FORMULA

a(0)=0. a(1)=a(2)=1. a(3*n)=A005408(n-1). a(3*n+1)=a(3*n)+1. a(3*n+2)=a(3*n)+2, n>0.

O.g.f.: x*(1+x^4)/((1-x)^2*(x^2+x+1)). a(n)=(2*n-2-A057078(n))/3, n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 16 2008

a(n) = (1/9)*Sum{k=0..n}{5*(k mod 3)+2*((k+1) mod 3)-((k+2) mod 3)}-1+(C(2*n,n) mod 2)+{C((n+1)^2,n+3) mod 2}, with n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Oct 07 2008 (corrected by Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 27 2011)

Euler transform of length 8 sequence [ 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, -1]. - Michael Somos, Jan 11 2011

0 = a(n) - a(n+1) - a(n+3) + a(n+4) if n>1. - Michael Somos, Nov 11 2015

a(n) = floor((2*n-1)/3) for n > 1. - Werner Schulte, Feb 27 2019

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + x^2 + x^3 + 2*x^4 + 3*x^5 + 3*x^6 + 4*x^7 + 5*x^8 + 5*x^9 + 6*x^10 + ...

MAPLE

A131737 := proc(n): (1/9)*add(5*(k mod 3)+2*((k+1) mod 3)-((k+2) mod 3), k=0..n)-1+(binomial(2*n, n) mod 2)+(binomial((n+1)^2, n+3) mod 2) end: seq( A131737(n), n=0..74); # Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 27 2011
