FORMULA

a(n) = A000931(n+4).
G.f.: x * (1 + x) / (1  x^2  x^3) = x / (1  x / (1  x^2 / (1 + x / (1  x / (1 + x))))).  Michael Somos, Jan 03 2013


EXAMPLE

a(6)=3 because 6+4=10 and A000931(10)=3.


MATHEMATICA

Drop[ CoefficientList[ Series[(1  x^2)/(1  x^2  x^3), {x, 0, 52}], x], 5] (* Or *) a[1] = a[2] = a[3] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = a[n  2] + a[n  3]; Array[ a, 48] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Sep 30 2009 *)


CROSSREFS

The following are basically all variants of the same sequence: A000931, A078027, A096231, A124745, A133034, A134816, A164001, A182097, A228361 and probably A020720. However, each one has its own special features and deserves its own entry.
Sequence in context: A133034 A000931 A078027 * A228361 A182097 A072493
Adjacent sequences: A134813 A134814 A134815 * A134817 A134818 A134819
