COMMENTS
Second quadrisection of natural numbers shifted right two places. - Ralf Stephan, Jun 10 2005
A permutation of the natural numbers partitioned into quadruples [4k-3,4k-1,4k,4k-2] for k > 0. Partition the natural number sequence into quadruples starting with (1,2,3,4); swap the second and third elements, then swap the third and fourth elements; repeat for all quadruples. - Guenther Schrack, Oct 18 2017

FORMULA
G.f.: x*(2*x^4 - 2*x^3 + x^2 + 2*x + 1)/((x-1)^2*(x+1)*(x^2+1)). - Colin Barker, Nov 08 2012
From Guenther Schrack, Oct 18 2017: (Start)
a(n) = a(n-4) + 4 for n > 4.
a(n) = n + periodic[0,1,1,-2].
a(n) = A092486(A067060(n) - 1) for n > 0.
a(n) = A292576(n) - 2*((-1)^floor(n/2)) for n > 0.
a(A116966(n-1)) = A263449(n-1) for n > 0.
A263449(a(n) - 1) = A116966(n-1) for n > 0.
a(n+2) - a(n) = (-1)^floor(n^2/4)*A132400(n+1) for n > 0.
a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-4) - a(n-5) for n > 5. (End)
a(n) = A298364(n-1) + 1 for n > 1. - Guenther Schrack, Feb 04 2018
