COMMENTS

This satisfies the same recurrence as Dana Scott's sequence A048736.

FORMULA

G.f.: x * (1 + x - x^2 - 2*x^3 - 3*x^4 - x^5 - x^6 - x^7) / (1 + 2*x^3 - 2*x^6 - x^9).

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

a(3*n) = (-1)^n * F(n)^2, a(3*n + 1) = (-1)^n * F(n + 2)^2 where F = Fibonacci A000045.

a(6*n - 4) = - A110034(2*n), a(6*n - 1) = - A110035(2*n), a(3*n + 2) = (-1)^n * A126116(2*n + 3).

EXAMPLE

x + x^2 - x^3 - 4*x^4 - 5*x^5 + x^6 + 9*x^7 + 11*x^8 - 4*x^9 - 25*x^10 + ...

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = local(k = n\3); (-1)^k * if( n%3 == 0, fibonacci( k )^2, if (n%3 == 1, fibonacci( k+2 )^2, fibonacci( k ) * fibonacci( k+3 ) + fibonacci( k+1 ) * fibonacci( k+2 )))}

(Haskell)

a206282 n = a206282_list !! (n-1)
