Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A186813 n/2 times period 4 sequence [ 1, 2, 3, 2, ...]. 1

M. Somos, Rational Function Multiplicative Coefficients

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-3,4,-3,2,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) is multiplicative with a(2) = 3, a(2^e) = 2^(e-1) if e>1, a(p^e) = p^e if p>2.

Euler transform of length 6 sequence [ 3, -3, 1, 2, 0, -1].

G.f.: x * (1 + x) * (1 + x^3) / ((1 - x) * (1 + x^2))^2. a(-n) = -a(n). a(n) = n/2 * A068073(n).

a(n) = n*(4-i^n-(-i)^n)/4 with i=sqrt(-1). - Bruno Berselli, Mar 10 2011

EXAMPLE

x + 3*x^2 + 3*x^3 + 2*x^4 + 5*x^5 + 9*x^6 + 7*x^7 + 4*x^8 + 9*x^9 + ...
