FORMULA

a(2n-1) = 1, a(2n) = A003499(n) - 2, for n>=1 [conjecture].

The above conjectures are correct. See the Bala link for details. - Peter Bala, Jan 08 2013

a(n) = 7*a(n-2)-7*a(n-4)+a(n-6). G.f.: -x*(x^4+4*x^3-6*x^2+4*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x+1)*(x^2-2*x-1)*(x^2+2*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Jan 20 2013

a(n) = (((-1-sqrt(2))^n+(1-sqrt(2))^n+(sqrt(2)-1)^n+(1+sqrt(2))^n-4))/2 for n even. - Colin Barker, May 11 2016

EXAMPLE

Let L = Sum_{n>=1} 1/(n*A003499(n)) or, more explicitly,

L = 1/6 + 1/(2*34) + 1/(3*198) + 1/(4*1154) + 1/(5*6726) +...

so that L = 0.1833074113563494600094468694966574405706183998044...

then exp(L) = 1.2011836088120841844713993433258934531421726294252...

equals the continued fraction given by this sequence:

exp(L) = [1;4,1,32,1,196,1,1152,1,6724,1,39200,1,...]; i.e.,

exp(L) = 1 + 1/(4 + 1/(1 + 1/(32 + 1/(1 + 1/(196 + 1/(1 +...)))))).

Compare these partial quotients to A003499(n), n=1,2,3,...:

[6,34,198,1154,6726,39202,228486,1331714,7761798,45239074,...].
