Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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).
