COMMENTS
Hankel transform of the sequence with g.f. 1/(1-x^2/(1-x^2/(1-3x^2/(1+(2/9)x^2/(1-(33/4)x^2/(1-...)))))) where 1,3,-2/9,33/4,... are the x-coordinates of the multiples of (0,0).

FORMULA
a(n) = (-a(n-1)*a(n-3)+a(n-2)^2)/a(n-4), n>3.
a(n) = (-1)^n * a(-2-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 11 2015
0 = a(n)*a(n+4) + a(n+1)*a(n+3) - a(n+2)*a(n+2) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 11 2015
0 = a(n)*a(n+5) + a(n+1)*a(n+4) - 3*a(n+2)*a(n+3) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 11 2015
