COMMENTS

a(n) is (-1)^C(n,2) times the Hankel transform of the sequence with g.f.

1/(1-x^2/(1-x^2/(1-4x^2/(1+(3/16)x^2/(1-(76/9)x^2/(1-(201/361)x^2/(1-... where

1,4,-3/16,76/9,201/361,... are the x-coordinates of the multiples of z=(0,0)

on E:y^2-xy-y=x^3+x^2+x.

LINKS

FORMULA

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

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=local(E, z); E=ellinit([ -1, 1, -1, 1, 0]); z=ellpointtoz(E, [0, 0]); round(ellsigma(E, n*z)/ellsigma(E, z)^(n^2))
