Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+x-x^2+x^3)/(1-x^2)^2.

a(n) = (-1)^n * a(-n) for all n in Z.

a(n) = (1/2) * [ 1 + n + (1-n)*(-1)^n ]. - Ralf Stephan, Dec 02 2004

a(n) = n^n mod (n+1) for n > 0. - Amarnath Murthy, Apr 18 2004

Satisfies a(0) = 1, a(n+1) = a(n) + n if a(n) < n else a(n+1) = a(n)/n. - Amarnath Murthy, Oct 29 2002

a(n) = ((n+1)+(1-n)(-1)^n)/2 and have e.g.f. (1+x)cosh(x). - Paul Barry, Apr 09 2003

a(n) = binomial(n, 2*floor(n/2)). - Paul Barry, Dec 28 2006

a(n) = binomial(n, (n mod 2)). - Paolo P. Lava, Aug 29 2007

Starting (1, 1, 3, 1, 5, 1, 7,...) = A133080^(-1) * [1,2,3,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Sep 08 2007

a(n) = denom(b(n+2)/b(n+1)) with b(n) = product((2*n-3-2*k), k=0..floor(n/2-1)). - Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 18 2009

a(n) = 2*floor(n/2) - n*(n-1 mod 2) + 1. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 19 2013

a(n) = n^(n mod 2). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 16 2014

EXAMPLE

1.557407724654902230506974807... = 1 + 1/(1 + 1/(1 + 1/(3 + 1/(1 + ...))))

G.f. = 1 + x + x^2 + 3*x^3 + x^4 + 5*x^5 + x^6 + 7*x^7 + x^8 + 9*x^9 + x^10 + ...

MAPLE

A093178:=n->(n+1+(1-n)*(-1)^n)/2; seq(A093178(k), k=0..100); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 19 2013
