 OFFSET 0,2 LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,-1). FORMULA a(n) = (-1)^n*A104771(n). G.f.: (1+x+x^2)/(1-x+x^3). EXAMPLE a(3) = 2 because 2 = 3 - 1 where the 1, 3 on the right of the equals sign are the first and third terms of the series. MATHEMATICA LinearRecurrence[{1, 0, -1}, {1, 2, 3}, 80] (* Harvey P.
