COMMENTS

Interleaving of A010701 and A007395.

Also continued fraction expansion of (3+sqrt(15))/2.

Also decimal expansion of 32/99.

a(n) = A010693(n+1).

Essentially first differences of A047218.

Binomial transform of 3 followed by -A122803.

Inverse binomial transform of 3 followed by A020714.

Second inverse binomial transform of A057198 without initial term 1.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..104.

FORMULA

a(n) = (5+(-1)^n)/2.

a(n) = a(n-2) for n > 1; a(0) = 3, a(1) = 2.

a(n) = -a(n-1)+5 for n > 0; a(0) = 3.

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

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

MAPLE
