Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The cyclic pattern (and numerator of the gf) is computed using Euclid's algorithm for GCD.

The sequence can be obtained from A008588 by deleting the last digit of each term. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 11 2019

FORMULA

G.f.: x^2*(1 + x^2 + x^3)/((1 - x)*(1 - x^5)). - Bruce Corrigan (scentman(AT)myfamily.com), Jul 03 2002

For all m>=0: a(5m)=0 mod 3; a(5m+1)=0 mod 3; a(5m+2)=1 mod 3; a(5m+3)=1 mod 3; a(5m+4)=2 mod 3.

a(n) = -1 + Sum_{k=0..n} (1/50)*(3*(k mod 5) - 7*((k+1) mod 5) + 13*((k+2) mod 5) - 7*((k+3) mod 5) + 13*((k+4) mod 5)). - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 17 2008

Sum_{n>=2} (-1)^n/a(n) = Pi/(3*sqrt(3)) - log(2)/3. - Amiram Eldar, Sep 30 2022
