FORMULA

Let F(n) be the Fibonacci number A000045(n).

a(n) = Sum_{k = 1..n} (-1)^k F(k).

Closed form: a(n) = (-1)^n F(n-1) - 1 = (-1)^n A008346(n-1).

Recurrence: a(n) - 2 a(n-2) + a(n-3)= 0.

G.f.: A(x) = -x/(1 - 2 x^2 + x^3) = -x/((1 - x)(1 + x - x^2)).

Another recurrence: a(n) = a(n-2) - a(n-1) - 1. - Rick L. Shepherd, Aug 12 2009
