Ramanujan theta functions: f(q) (see A121373), phi(q) (A000122), psi(q) (A010054), chi(q) (A000700).

FORMULA
Fine gives an explicit formula for a(n) in terms of the divisors of n.
Euler transform of period 8 sequence [ 2, -1, 2, -4, 2, -1, 2, -2, ...].
Expansion of (eta(q^2) * eta(q^4))^3 / (eta(q) * eta(q^8))^2 in powers of q.
Coefficients in expansion of Sum_{i,j=-inf..inf} q^(i^2 + 2*j^2).
G.f. = s(2)^3*s(4)^3/(s(1)^2*s(8)^2), where s(k) := subs(q=q^k, eta(q)), where eta(q) is Dedekind's function, cf. A010815. [Fine]
G.f.: 1 + 2 * Sum_{k>0} Kronecker(-2, n) * x^k / (1 - x^k) = 1 + 2 * Sum_{k>0} (x^k + x^(3*k)) / (1 + x^(4*k)).
G.f.: theta_3(q) * theta_3(q^2) = Product_{k>0} (1 + x^(2*k)) * ((1 + x^k) * (1 - x^(2*k)) / (1 + x^(4*k)))^2.
From Michael Somos, Oct 23 2006: (Start)
Moebius transform is period 8 sequence [ 2, 0, 2, 0, -2, 0, -2, 0, ...].
G.f. A(x) satisfies 0 = f(A(x), A(x^2), A(x^3), A(x^6)) where f(u1, u2, u3, u6) = (u1 - 3*u3) * (u1 - u2 - u3 + u6) - (u2 - 3*u6) * (u1 - 2*u2 - u3 + 2*u6). (End)
a(n) = 2 * A002325(n) unless n = 0.
G.f. is a period 1 Fourier series which satisfies f(-1 / (8 t)) = 8^(1/2) (t/i) f(t) where q = exp(2 Pi i t). - Michael Somos, Sep 09 2012
From Michael Somos, Aug 29 2014: (Start)
Expansion of phi(q) * phi(q^2) in powers of q where phi() is a Ramanujan theta function.
a(2*n) = a(n). a(2*n + 1) = 2 * A113411(n). (End)
From Michael Somos, May 17 2015: (Start)
a(n) = A028572(4*n) = A133692(2*n) = A139093(8*n) = A226225(8*n) = A226240(4*n) = A242609(4*n) = A245572(4*n) / 3 = (-1)^floor((n + 1)/2) * A082564(n).
a(8*n + 5) = a(8*n + 7) = 0. a(8*n + 1) = 2 * A112603(n). a(8*n + 3) = 4 * A033761(n). (End)
a(0) = 1, a(n) = 2 * b(n) for n > 0, where b() is multiplicative with a(2^e) = 1, a(p^e) = e + 1 if p == 1, 3 (mod 8), a(p^e) = (1 + (-1)^e)/2 if p == 5, 7 (mod 8). - Jianing Song, Sep 04 2018
Asymptotic mean: Limit_{m->oo} (1/m) * Sum_{k=0..m} a(k) = Pi/sqrt(2) = 2.221441... (A247719). - Amiram Eldar, Dec 16 2023
