COMMENTS

Denominators of the reduced fractions A064038(n)/a(n) = 0/1, 1/18, 3/50, 3/49, 5/81, 15/242, 21/338, 14/225, 18/289, ... .

Also, A064038 and a(n) are related to the sequence of period 4: repeat 1, 2, 2, 1.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-6,10,-12,12,-10,6,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = A014695(n) * A016754(n).

a(n) = 16*A064038(n+1) + A014695(n).

a(n) = A061042(4+8*n).

a(2n+2) - a(2n+1) = 32*A026741(n+1).

G.f.: ( -1 - 15*x - 2*x^2 + 3*x^3 - 66*x^4 + 3*x^5 - 2*x^6 - 15*x^7 - x^8 ) / ( (x-1)^3*(x^2+1)^3 ). - R. J. Mathar, Jun 04 2013

a(n) = (3-sqrt(2)*cos((2*n+1)*Pi/4))*(2*n+1)^2/2. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 04 2018

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1*1, a(1) = 2*9 = 18, a(2) = 2*25 = 50, a(3) = 1*49 = 49.

a(0) = 16*0 + 1 = 1, a(1) = 16*1 + 2 = 18, a(2) = 16*3 + 2 = 50, a(3) = 16*3 + 1 = 49.
