FORMULA

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

a(n) = Sum_{k = 1..n} (-1)^k F(k)^2.

Closed form: a(n) = (-1)^n F(2n+1)/5 - (2 n + 1)/5.

Recurrence: a(n) + a(n-1) - 4 a(n-2) + a(n-3) + a(n-4) = 0.

G.f.: A(x) = (-x - x^2)/(1 + x - 4 x^2 + x^3 + x^4) = -x(1 + x)/((1 - x)^2 (1 + 3 x + x^2)).

a(n) = ( -1-2*n+(-1)^n*( A001906(n+1)-A001906(n) ))/5. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 16 2007

a(n) = (2^(-1-n)*(-5*2^(1+n)+5*(-3+sqrt(5))^n - sqrt(5)*(-3+sqrt(5))^n + (-3-sqrt(5))^n*(5+sqrt(5)) - 5*2^(2+n)*n)) / 25. - Colin Barker, Apr 25 2017

EXAMPLE

The first few squares of Fibonacci numbers are: 0, 1, 1, 4, 9, 25, 64, 169.

a(0) = 0.

a(1) = 0 - 1 = -1.

a(2) = 0 - 1 + 1 = 0.

a(3) = 0 - 1 + 1 - 4 = -4.

a(4) = 0 - 1 + 1 - 4 + 9 = 5.
