COMMENTS

a(n) and higher order differences in further rows:

0,  -1,  1,  3,  2,  1,

-1,  2,  2, -1, -1, -2,    A134430(n).

3,   0, -3,  0,  3,  0,

-3, -3,  3,  3, -3, -3,

0,   6,  0, -6,  0,  6,

6,  -6, -6,  6,  6, -6.

a(n) is the binomial transform of 0, -1, 3, -3, 0, 6, -12, 12, 0, -24, 48, -48, 0, 96..., essentially negated A134813.

By definition, all differences a(n+k)-a(n) are periodic sequences with period length 4. For k=1, 3 and 4 these are A134430, A021307 and A007395, for example.

FORMULA

a(2*n) = n, a(2*n+1) = A097062(n+1).

a(n) = (A214297(n+1) - A214297(n-1))/2.

a(3*n) =3*A004525(n).

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

a(n) = ((-3*I)*((-I)^n-I^n)+2*n)/4. - Colin Barker, Oct 19 2015
