FORMULA

a(n) = ((3/2)*a(n-1)*a(n-3) - a(n-2)^2)/a(n-4), n>3.

a(-n) = a(n-1) / 2^(2*n - 1) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 06 2011

0 = a(n)*(+2*a(n+4)) + a(n+1)*(-3*a(n+3)) + a(n+2)*(+2*a(n+2)) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Sep 18 2014

a(n+4) = -16 * a(n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Sep 02 2015

G.f.: -(2*x-1)*(4*x^2+3*x+1)/(1+16*x^4) . - R. J. Mathar, Aug 18 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + x - 2*x^2 - 8*x^3 - 16*x^4 - 16*x^5 + 32*x^6 + 128*x^7 + ...
