COMMENTS

a(n+1) is the sum of the smaller parts in the partitions of n into two parts with the larger part odd. For example, a(11) = 9; the partitions of 10 into two parts are (9,1), (8,2), (7,3), (6,4) and (5,5). Three of these partitions have an odd number as their larger part, namely (9,1), (7,3) and (5,5). Adding the smaller parts of these partitions gives 1 + 3 + 5 = 9.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..floor((n1)/2)} i * ((ni+1) mod 2).
Conjectures from Colin Barker, Dec 06 2017: (Start)
G.f.: x^3*(1  x + x^2 + x^3) / ((1  x)^3*(1 + x)^2*(1 + x^2)^2).
a(n) = a(n1) + 2*a(n4)  2*a(n5)  a(n8) + a(n9) for n > 9.
(End)
a(n) = floor((n+1)/4)^2*(n mod 2)+(1+floor((n2)/4))*floor((n2)/4)*((n+1) mod 2).  Wesley Ivan Hurt, Dec 08 2017


EXAMPLE

a(10) = 6; the partitions of 10 into two parts are (9,1), (8,2), (7,3), (6,4) and (5,5). Two of these partitions have an even number as their larger part, namely (8,2) and (6,4). Adding the smaller parts of these partitions gives 2 + 4 = 6.
