FORMULA

Euler transform of length 4 sequence [ 1, 3, -1, -1].

a(n) is multiplicative with a(2^e) = 2^(e+1) if e>0, otherwise a(p^e) = p^e.

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

G.f.: (1 - x^3) * (1 - x^4) / ((1 - x) * (1 - x^2)^3).

MOBIUS transform of A215947 is [1, 4, 3, 8, 5, ...].

a(n) = n * A040001(n) if n>0.

a(n) + a(n-1) = A007310(n) if n>0.

a(n) = A001082(n+1) - A001082(n) if n>0.

Binomial transform with a(0)=0 is A128543 if n>0.

a(2*n) = A008574(n). a(2*n + 1) = A005408(n).

a(n) = A022998(n) if n>0. - R. J. Mathar, Apr 19 2015

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + x + 4*x^2 + 3*x^3 + 8*x^4 + 5*x^5 + 12*x^6 + 7*x^7 + 16*x^8 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] := Which[ n < 1, Boole[n == 0], OddQ[n], n, True, 2 n];

a[ n_] := SeriesCoefficient[ (1 + x + 2*x^2 + x^3 + x^4) / (1 - 2*x^2 + x^4), {x, 0, n}];

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = if( n<1, n==0, n%2, n, 2*n)};

(PARI) {a(n) = if( n<0, 0, polcoeff( (1 + x + 2*x^2 + x^3 + x^4) / (1 - 2*x^2 + x^4) + x * O(x^n), n))};

(Haskell)

import Data.List (transpose)

a257088 n = a257088_list !! n

a257088_list = concat $ transpose [a008574_list, a005408_list]
