COMMENTS

The amplitude and periodicity of fluctuations increase... for example a(813) through a(836) are all positive and a(914) through a(937) all are positive except for a(922).

EXAMPLE

a(10) = -4 because 10 (mod 2) - 10 (mod 3) + 10 (mod 5) - 10 (mod 7) = 0-1+0-3.

MAPLE

a:= n-> add(-irem(n, ithprime(i))*(-1)^i, i=1..numtheory[pi](n)):

seq(a(n), n=0..100);  # Alois P. Heinz, Jul 27 2015
