COMMENTS

Define a 1-based sum S(n) = sum_{i=1..n} (1 - (-1)^i*i) = A014682(n).

a(n) is this sum evaluated for the upper limit prime(n) = A000040(n).

a(n) = prime(n) + (prime(n)+1)/2 for n>1. (E.g., 3 + 4/2 = 5, 5 + 6/2 = 8, 7 + 8/2 = 11, ....) - Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Nov 30 2009 [edited by Jon E. Schoenfield, Feb 10 2015]

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1-1*(-1)^1+1-2*(-1)^2 = 1+1+1-2 = 1.

a(3) = 1-1*(-1)^1+1-2*(-1)^2+1-3*(-1)^3+1-4*(-1)^4+1-5*(-1)^5 = 1+1+1-2+1+3+1-4+1+5 = 8.
