COMMENTS

Starting from the polynomials B_n(x) defined in A137276 and A135929, we insert x=2*cos(t), and define the Fourier coefficients A(n,m) by B_n(2*cos t)-2*cos(n*t) = 4*sum(m=0,..,n-2) A(n,m)*cos(m*t).

A(n,m) is not an integer for n=0, so the table starts at n=1. Furthermore, A(n,m)=0 if n-m is odd, these regular zeros are skipped as usual, so effectively the first table entry appears at n=2.

Simpler definition from R. J. Mathar, Apr 15 2010: a(n)=1 if n =0 or n in A002061, otherwise a(n)=2. So this is a kind of characteristic function of the central polygonal numbers A002061.
