COMMENTS

For an origin of this sequence, see the triangular spiral illustrated in the Links section.

First bisection gives A117625 (without the initial term).

FORMULA

G.f.: (2+2*x+4*x^2+2*x^3-x^4)/((1+x)^2*(1-x)^3).

a(n) = a(n-1)+2*a(n-2)-2*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5).

a(n)-a(-n-1) = A168329(n+1).

a(n)+a(n-1) = A102214(n).

a(2n)-a(2n-1) = A016885(n).

a(2n+1)-a(2n) = A016825(n).
