LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..78.

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

FORMULA

Period 8 sequence: [ -2,-1,0,-1,2,1,0,1].

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

a(n)=1/8*{3*(n mod 8)-[(n+1) mod 8]+[(n+2) mod 8]+[(n+3) mod 8]-3*[(n+4) mod 8]+[(n+5) mod 8]-[(n+6) mod 8]-[(n+7) mod 8]} with n>=0 - Paolo P. Lava, Nov 27 2006

a(n) = sqrt((n+1)^2 mod 8))(-1)^floor((n+3)/4). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jan 04 2014

EXAMPLE

For n>=1, convergents A118825(k)/A118826(k) are:

at k = 4*n: 1/A080277(n);

at k = 4*n+1: 2/(2*A080277(n)-1);

at k = 4*n+2: 1/(A080277(n)-1);

at k = 4*n-1: 0/(-1)^n.

Convergents begin:

-2/1, -1/1, 0/-1, -1/-1, 2/1, 1/0, 0/1, 1/4,

-2/-7, -1/-3, 0/-1, -1/-5, 2/9, 1/4, 0/1, 1/12,

-2/-23, -1/-11, 0/-1, -1/-13, 2/25, 1/12, 0/1, 1/16,

-2/-31, -1/-15, 0/-1, -1/-17, 2/33, 1/16, 0/1, 1/32, ...

MAPLE
