COMMENTS

The denominator is a parameterization of the Alexander polynomial for the knot 7_6. The g.f. is the image of the g.f. of A030191 under the modified Chebyshev transform A(x)->(1/(1+x^2)^2)A(x/(1+x^2))

FORMULA

G.f.: -(x-1)*(x+1)*(x^2+1) / (x^4-5*x^3+7*x^2-5*x+1). - Colin Barker, Feb 10 2014

a(n) = A099448(n)-A099448(n-2).

a(n) = 5*a(n-1)-7*a(n-2)+5*a(n-3)-a(n-4) for n>4. - Colin Barker, Feb 10 2014
