This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

%F It appears that a(n) = A160164(n) - A169707(n). - _Omar E. Pol_, Feb 17 2015

%e When written as a triangle:

%e 1, 5;

%e 1, 5, 9, 13;

%e 1, 5, 9, 13, 9, 21, 33, 29;

%e Rows sums are A006516 (this is immediate from the definition).

%e From _Omar E. Pol_, Feb 17 2015: (Start)

%e Also, written as an irregular triangle in which the row lengths are the terms of A011782:

%e 1;

%e 1;

%e 5,1;

%e 5,9,13,1;

%e 5,9,13,9,21,33,29,1;

%e Row sums give 1 together with the positive terms of A006516.

%e It appears that the right border (A000012) gives the smallest difference between A160164 and A169707 in every period.
