COMMENTS

Interleaving of A000290 and A067998 (starting at second term).

First differences are -1, 2, -1, 4, -1, 6, -1, 8, -1, 10, ...: a(n+1) - a(n) = (-1)^(n+1)*A124625(n+2).

Main diagonal of T is in A001057, antidiagonal sums are in A131804.

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

FORMULA

a(0) = 0; a(n) = a(n-1) - (n mod 2) + n*(1 - (n mod 2)) for n > 0.

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

a(n) = -A131118(2n) = (2n(n-1)+(2n+3)(-1)^n-3)/8. - Bruno Berselli, Mar 27 2012

[ 0, -1, 4, -2, 3 ],

[ 0, -1, 5, -2, 4, -3 ],

[ 0, -1, 6, -2, 5, -3, 4 ]
