Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Since n^(2k+1) mod 4 = n^3 mod 4 for k>1 this sequence also represents n^5 mod 4; and n^7 mod 4; etc.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..104.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = n^3 mod 4.

G.f. = (x+3*x^3)/(1-x^4).

a(n) = (1/12)*(11*(n mod 4) - 7*((n+1) mod 4) + 5*((n+2) mod 4) - ((n+3) mod 4)). - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 21 2006

a(n) = (n mod 2)*(n mod 4) = (1+(-1)^(n+1))*(2+i^(n+1))/2 with i=sqrt(-1). - Bruno Berselli, Mar 14 2011
