FORMULA

Expansion of (q * f(-q, -q^7)^2 / psi(-q))^2 in powers of q where psi(), f() are Ramanujan theta functions.

Euler transform of period 8 sequence [-2, 0, 2, 2, 2, 0, -2, -2, ...].

G.f.: (theta_3(x) - theta_3(x^2))^2 / 4 = (Sum_{k>0} x^(k^2) - x^(2k^2))^2.

Convolution square of A143259.

EXAMPLE

G.f. = q^2 - 2*q^3 + q^4 + 2*q^5 - 2*q^6 + q^8 - 2*q^9 + 4*q^10 - 2*q^11 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] := SeriesCoefficient[ (EllipticTheta[ 3, 0, q] - EllipticTheta[ 3, 0, q^2])^2 / 4, {q, 0, n}];
