COMMENTS

The Fi2 sums, see A180662, of triangle A108299 equal the terms of this sequence. - Johannes W. Meijer, Aug 11 2011

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..77.

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

FORMULA

First differences of A134667.

a(n) = (1/6)*{-2*[(n+1) mod 6]+[(n+2) mod 6]-[(n+4) mod 6]+2*[(n+5) mod 6]}. - Paolo P. Lava, Jan 28 2008

Euler transform of length 6 sequence [-1, 0, 0, -1, 0, 1]. - Michael Somos, Feb 08 2008

a(n) = a(-1-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Feb 08 2008

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

a(6*n + 2) = a(6*n + 3) = 0. - Michael Somos, Oct 16 2015

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 20 2016: (Start)

a(n) + a(n-2) + a(n-4) = 0 for n>3.

a(n) = cos(n*Pi/6) * (3*cos(n*Pi/2) + 2*sqrt(3)*sin(n*Pi/6) - 3*sqrt(3)*sin(n*Pi/2))/3. (End)

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 - x - x^4 + x^5 + x^6 - x^7 - x^10 + x^11 + x^12 - x^13 - x^16 + ...

MAPLE
