COMMENTS

Similarly, the principle of interlacing a sequence and its first differences leads from A000012 and its differences A000004 to A059841, or from A140811 and its first differences A017593 to a sequence -1, 6, 5, 18,...

If n is even then a(n) = n + 1 ; otherwise a(n) = 2. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 05 2013

Denominators of floor((n+1)/2) / (n+1), n > 0. [Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 14 2013]

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..64.

FORMULA

a(2n) = A005408(n). a(2n+1) = 2.

First differences: a(n+1) - a(n) = (-1)^(n+1)*A109613(n-1), n > 0.

b(2n) = -A008586(n), and b(2n+1) = A060747(n), where b(n) = a(n+1) - 2*a(n).

a(n) = 2*a(n-2) - a(n-4). G.f.: (1+2*x+x^2-2*x^3)/((x-1)^2*(1+x)^2). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 23 2009

Contribution from Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 05 2013 (Start):

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

a(n) = (n + 1) * (n - floor((n+1)/2))! / floor((n+1)/2)!.

a(n) = A000142(n+1) / A211374(n+1). (end)

MAPLE

a(n):=n->n+1-(n-1)*(n mod 2); seq(a(k), k=1..100); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 05 2013
