COMMENTS

Alternated reading of negative of A140660 and A140529.

The binomial transform yields -4 followed by the negative of A140657.

The inverse binomial transform yields essentially a signed version of A000244. - R. J. Mathar, Aug 02 2008.

FORMULA

a(2n)= -A140660(n). a(2n+1)= A140529(n).

a(n+1)-a(n)= (-1)^n*A005010(n). a(2n)+a(2n+1)= A096045(n).

a(n) = A140590(n+1)-2*A140590(n).

O.g.f: (4-x)/((x-1)(2x+1)). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 02 2008
