Reinhard Zumkeller, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{m = 1 .. ceiling(n/2)} (-1)^(m+1)* binomial(n, m), n >= 1.

a(2*k+1) = (1 - (-1)^(k+1)*A001791(k)), k >= 0.

a(2*k) =  (1 - (-1)^k*A001700(k-1)), k >= 1.

O.g.f. for a(2*k+1), k >= 0: (2+3*x - (1-x)*(1+2*x)*c(-x))/((1+4*x)*(1-x)), with the o.g.f. c(x) of A000108 (Catalan).

O.g.f. for a(2*(k+1)), k >= 0:

  (3+2*x - (1-x)*c(-x))/((1+4*x)*(1-x)).

O.g.f. for a(n), n >= 1:

x*((1+x)*(2+x+2*x^2) - (1+x+2*x^2)*(1-x^2)*c(-x^2))/((1+4*x^2)*(1-x^2)).

EXAMPLE

n = 3: a(3) = (1 - A001791(1)) = 1 - 1 = 0.

n = 4: a(4) = (1 - A001700(1)) = 1 - 3 = -2.
