COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of compositions of n+2 such that: i) the first part is odd, ii) the last part is even, and iii) no two consecutive parts have the same parity. - Geoffrey Critzer, Mar 04 2012

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..42.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,1,-1).

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 5 because there are 5 such compositions of the integer 9: 1+8, 7+2, 3+6, 5+4, 1+2+1+2+1+2. - Geoffrey Critzer, Mar 04 2012
