Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000

FORMULA

a(n) = mod(n^(n+1),n+1) + floor(n/2)^2*(6-4(-1)^n) + [16*floor(n/2)^3 + floor(n/2)*(14-12(-1)^n)]/3

Interweave A114254 and A137931.

Empirical G.f.: x*(1+7*x-3*x^2+3*x^3)/((1-x)^4*(1+x)). [Colin Barker, Jan 12 2012]

From Robert Israel, Jun 25 2019: (Start)

Empirical G.f. confirmed using G.f.'s of A114254 and A137931.

a(n) = 2*n^3/3 + n^2/2 + 4*n/3 + 3*((-1)^n -1)/4. (End)

EXAMPLE

a(1) = mod(1^(1+1),1+1) + floor(1/2)^2*(6-4(-1)^1) + [16*floor(1/2)^3 + floor(1/2)*(14-12(-1)^1)]/3 = 1

a(2) = mod(2^(2+1),2+1) + floor(2/2)^2*(6-4(-1)^2) + [16*floor(2/2)^3 + floor(2/2)*(14-12(-1)^2)]/3 = 10

MAPLE

f:= n -> 2*n^3/3 + n^2/2 + 4*n/3 + 3*((-1)^n -1)/4:

map(f, [$0..100]); # Robert Israel, Jun 25 2019
