COMMENTS

Essentially a permutation of A129756 (odd numbers repeated four times).

a(-1) = 3, a(-2) = a(-3) = 1.

Distance between the first two (2*k+1)'s: 2*k+1 terms. Distance between the last two (2*n+1)'s: 4 terms. Essentially same distances as in -a(-n) = -1, -3, -1, -1, 1, 1, 1, 3, 1, 5, 3, 7, 3, 9, 5, 11, 3, 13, 7, 15, 5, 17, 9, 19, 5, 21, 11, 23, 7, 25, 13, 27, 7, ... .

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-4) + a(n-8) - a(n-12).

a(n) * A246416(n) = A061037(n+2).

A246416(n+4) - a(n) = sequence of period 4: [1, 0, 0, 0].

a(n+4) - a(n) = sequence of period 8: [0, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 2, 4].

G.f.: -(3*x^11+x^10+x^9-x^8-4*x^7-2*x^6-4*x^5-7*x^3-3*x^2-5*x-1) / ((x-1)^2*(x+1)^2*(x^2+1)^2*(x^4+1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 21 2014

a(n) = a(n-8) + sequence of period 4: [2, 8, 4, 8] (= 2*A176895(n)).

a(-n) * A246416(-n) = A061037(n-2).

a(n) = (n+4)*(1-ceiling((2-n)/4)-ceiling((n-2)/4))/2+(n+4)*(1+floor((1-n)/2)+floor((n-1)/2))-(n+2+2(-1)^(n/4))*(ceiling(n/4)-floor(n/4)-1)/4. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 21 2014
