FORMULA

a(n) = numerator of 5/(6*n)^2 .

Period 5: repeat [1,5,5,5,5].

G.f.: (1 + 5*x + 5*x^2 + 5*x^3 + 5*x^4)/((1-x)*(1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4)).

a(n) = 4*(n^4 mod 5)+1, with n >= 0. - Paolo P. Lava, Dec 14 2009

a(n) = 1 + 4*sign(n mod 5). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 26 2018

a(n) = (21-8*cos(2*n*Pi/5)-8*cos(4*n*Pi/5))/5. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 27 2018
