From Paul Curtz, Feb 09 2015: (Start)

The nonnegative numbers with 0 instead of 1. See A254667(n), which is linked to the Bernoulli numbers A164555(n)/A027642(n), an autosequence of the second kind.

Offset 0 could be chosen.

An autosequence of the second kind is a sequence whose main diagonal is the first upper diagonal multiplied by 2. If the first upper diagonal is

s0, s1, s2, s3, s4, s5, ...,

the sequence is

Ssk(n) = 2*s0, s0, s0 + 2*s1, s0 +3*s1, s0 + 4*s1 + 2*s2, s1 + 5*s1 + 5*s2, etc.

The corresponding coefficients are A034807(n), a companion to A011973(n).

The binomial transform of Ssk(n) is (-1)^n*Ssk(n).

Difference table of a(n):

0,  0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ...

0,  2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, ...

2, -1, 0, 0, 0, 0 ...

-3, 1, 0, 0, 0, ...

4, -1, 0, 0, ...

-5, 1, 0, ...

6, -1, ...

7, ...

etc.

a(n) is an autosequence of the second kind. See A054977(n).

The corresponding autosequence of the first kind (a companion) is 0, 0 followed by the nonnegative numbers (A001477(n)). Not in the OEIS.

Ssk(n) = 2*Sfk(n+1) - Sfk(n) where Sfk(n) is the corresponding sequence of the first kind (see A254667(n)).
