COMMENTS

a(n) = (n+2)(n+3)/2 mod n+2.  Amarnath Murthy, Jun 17 2004

FORMULA

From Paul Barry, May 27 2003: (Start)
Binomial transform is A045891. Partial sums are A008805. The sequence 0, 1, 0, 2, ... has a(n)=floor((n+2)/2)(1(1)^n)/2.
a(n) = floor((n+3)/2)(1+(1)^n)/2. (End)
a(n) = ((1+(1)^n)/4)*Sum_{k=0..n} (1+(1)^k).  Paolo P. Lava, Nov 30 2007
a(n) = (n+2)*(1 + (1)^n)/4.  Bruno Berselli, Apr 01 2011
a(n) = A008619(n) * A059841(n).  Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 17 2013
