Antti Karttunen, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..16383

Antti Karttunen, Data supplement: n, a(n) computed for n = 0..65537

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(n^(1/4))*(-1)^n/2-((-1)^(floor(n^(1/4))+1)+1)/4.

EXAMPLE

Letting [] denote the floor function, a(7) = [0^(1/4)] - [1^(1/4)] + [2^(1/4)] - [3^(1/4)] + [4^(1/4)] - [5^(1/4)] + [6^(1/4)] - [7^(1/4)] = 0 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 - 1 = -1.

MATHEMATICA

Print[Table[Sum[(-1)^k*Floor[k^(1/4)], {k, 0, n}], {n, 0, 100}]] ;

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=floor(n^(1/4))*(-1)^n/2-((-1)^(floor(n^(1/4))+1)+1)/4

(PARI) a(n)=sum(k=0, n, (-1)^k*floor(k^(1/4)))

(PARI) A262352(n) = sum(k=0, n, ((-1)^k)*sqrtnint(k, 4)); \\ Antti Karttunen, Nov 06 2018
