 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS It is essentially A000129, A077985 and A069306 except for signs and offsets. a(n)=a(n - 1) - sqrt(2*a(n - 1)^2 + (-1)^n) = a(n-1)*(1-sqrt(2-(-1)^n/a(n-1)^2)) for n>0. So in the limit of n->infinity, a(n+1)/a(n)= 1-Sqrt(2). This matches the following formula in A000045: Fibonacci(n) = Fibonacci(n - 1)*(1 + sqrt( 5+4*(-1)^(n-1)/Fibonacci(n-1)^2) )/2.
