COMMENTS

a(n) is the constant term of the canonical representative (polynomial of degree < 5) of x^n (mod x^5-x^3-2*x^2+1), see example.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..42.

FORMULA

G.f.: sum( a(k) x^k, k=0...oo ) = (1 - x^2 - 2*x^3)/(1 - x^2 - 2*x^3 + x^5)

EXAMPLE

x^6 = x^4 + 2*x^3 - x (mod x^5 - x^3 - 2*x^2 + 1), and the l.h.s. has no constant term, so a(6) = 0.

x^14 = 14*x^4 + 26*x^3 + 22*x^2 - 9*x - 13 (mod x^5 - x^3 - 2*x^2 + 1), and the constant term on the r.h.s. is a(14) = -13.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = polcoeff( lift( Mod( x, x^5-x^3-2*x^2+1)^n), 0)
