COMMENTS

Equals row sums of triangle A153860. - Gary W. Adamson, Jan 03 2009

1 followed by interleaving of A000012 and A010701. - Klaus Brockhaus, Jan 04 2009

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..70.

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

FORMULA

a(n)=1 if n is 1 or even number;

a(n)=3 if n is any odd number other than 1.

G.f.: x*(1 + x + 2*x^2)/((1+x)*(1-x)). - Klaus Brockhaus, Jan 04 2009

EXAMPLE

a(1)=1, a(2)=2-a(1)=2-1=1, a(3)=3+a(2)-a(1)=3+1-1=3, a(4)=4-a(3)+a(2)-a(1)=4-3+1-1=1, a(5)=5+1-3+1-1=3, a(6)=6-3+1-3+1-1=1, a(7)=7+1-3+1-3+1-1, etc.

PROG

(MAGMA) S:=[ 1 ]; for n in [2..105] do Append(~S, n + &+[ (-1)^j*S[j]: j in [1..n-1] ]); end for; S; // Klaus Brockhaus, Jan 04 2009
