COMMENTS

Starting with a(1)=0 and same definition, a(n)=n+(-1)^n (cf. A004442)

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-1).

FORMULA

a(n)-n is periodic with period (0, 2, 4, 2, 4, 2, 0, -2, -4, -2) of length 10.

a(10t+i) = 10t+c_i, 1<=i<=10, c_i=(1, 4, 7, 6, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 8). a(n) = n iff n == 1 or 7 (mod 10).

G.f.: x*(2*x^10+3*x^9-x^8-x^7-x^6-x^5+3*x^4-x^3+3*x^2+3*x+1) / (x^11-x^10-x+1). - Colin Barker, Oct 16 2013
