 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Mentioned in a posting by Paul D. Hanna to the Sequence Fans Mailing List, Dec 28 2010. LINKS FORMULA It appears that the records for positive integers occur at positions A059973(4n+1)-2 and A059973(4n+2)-2, while the records for negative integers occur at positions A059973(4n-1)-1 and A059973(4n)-1; that is, the records seem to obey the following rule: * a(A059973(4n+1)-2) = 2n-1 for n>1, * a(A059973(4n+2)-2) = 2n for n>=1, * a(A059973(4n-1)-1) = -(2n-1) for n>=1, * a(A059973(4n)-1) = -(2n) for n>=1; see A183555 and A183556. EXAMPLE WL(x) = 1 + x + x^3 + x^4 + x^6 + x^8 + x^9 + x^11 + x^12 +...+ x^[n*phi] + ... WU(x) = 1 + x^2 + x^5 + x^7 + x^10 + x^13 + x^15 + x^18 +...+ x^[n*(phi+1)] + ... G.f.: WL(-x)*WU(x) = 1 - x + x^2 - 2*x^3 + x^4 + x^6 + x^7 + x^10 - x^11 + x^12 + x^13 + x^14 + 2*x^15 - x^16 +...+ a(n)*x^n +... Positions of records for positive coefficients (A183555) in WL(-x)*WU(x) begin: 1: 0 2: 15 3: 159 4: 303 5: 2887 6: 5471 7: 51839 8: 98207 9: 930247 10: 1762287 ... Positions of records for negative coefficients (A183556) in WL(-x)*WU(x) begin: -1: 1 -2: 3 -3: 37 -4: 71 -5: 681 -6: 1291 -7: 12237 -8: 23183 -9: 219601 -10: 416019 ... Now compare the above positions to A059973: [1,1, 2,4, 9,17, 38,72, 161,305, 682,1292, 2889,5473, 12238,23184, 51841,98209, 219602,416020, 930249,1762289, ...].
