COMMENTS

The positive sequence is A131719(n+1) = a(n) = (cos(2*Pi*n/3+Pi/3)/6+sqrt(3)*sin(2*Pi*n/3+Pi/3)/6 -sqrt(3)*cos(Pi*n/3+Pi/6)/6+sin(Pi*n/3+Pi/6)/2+2/3, with g.f. (1+x^2) / ( (1-x)*(1-x+x^2)*(1+x+x^2) ).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..83.

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

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+x)/(1+x^2+x^4).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} binomial(k, floor(n/2)-k)*(-1)^k.

a(n) = -cos(2*Pi*n/3+Pi/3)/2 + sqrt(3)*sin(2*Pi*n/3+Pi/3)/6 + sqrt(3)*cos(Pi*n/3+Pi/6)/2 + sin(Pi*n/3+Pi/6)/2.

a(n) = cos(Pi*n/3) + sin(2*Pi*n/3)/sqrt(3). - R. J. Mathar, Oct 08 2011

a(n) + a(n-2) + a(n-4) = 0 for n>3. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 20 2016

E.g.f.: (sqrt(3)*sin(sqrt(3)*x/2) + 3*cos(sqrt(3)*x/2)*exp(x))*exp(-x/2)/3. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jun 21 2016
