 OFFSET 0,5 COMMENTS If n is even then a(n) is the absolute value of the coefficient of z^(n(n+1)/4). If n is odd, it is an open question as to which coefficient is a(n). For odd n values, the Berkovich/Uncu reference provides explicit conjectural formulas for a(n). - Ali Uncu, Jul 19 2020 LINKS Vaclav Kotesovec, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..5000 (terms n = 1..100 from Theodore Kolokolnikov, terms n = 101..1000 from Alois P.
