COMMENTS

Obtained from A026741 by swapping pairs of consecutive entries.

The main diagonal of an array with this sequence in the top row and further rows defined by the first differences of their previous row is essentially 1 followed by 3*A045623(.):

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..80.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(2n) = 2n+1; a(2n+1) = n.

a(n) = 2*a(n-2) - a(n-4).

a(2n+1) - 2*a(2n) = -A016789(n+1).

a(2n+2) - 2*a(2n+1) = 3.

G.f.: ( 1+x^2+x^3 ) / ( (x-1)^2*(1+x)^2 ). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 07 2011
