%e a(1) = 1 is odd, so we add the partial sum (so far equal to a(1)) to get the next term, a(2) = 2.

%e Now a(2) = 2 is even, so we subtract the sum of the digits of a(1) and a(2), 1 + 2 = 3 to get a(3) = -1.

%e Since a(3) = -1 is odd, we add the sum of the digits of a(1), a(2) and a(3), 1 + 2 + 1 = 4 to get a(4) = 3.

%e And so on.
