LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..43.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-x)/(1+x^2+x^3)*c((x/(1+x^2+x^3))^2), c(x) the g.f. of A000108. - (The formula does not match the entries, even if A000108 is replaced by A001006. R. J. Mathar, Feb 06 2015)

a(n)=sum{k=0..n, (-1)^C(n-k+1,2)*C(floor((n-k)/2),k)*A001006(k)}.

PROG

(PARI) A157143(n)=vector(n++, k, (-1)^binomial(n+1-k, 2)*binomial((n-k)\2, k-1))*Vec(serreverse(x/(1+x+x^2+O(x^n))))~ \\ M. F. Hasler, Feb 09 2015
