Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

From the definition, a(n) = A000290(n) - A005408(n) if A000217(n) - A005408(n) > A005408(n), 0 otherwise, where A000290 are the squares and A005408 are the gaps between squares: 2n + 1.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3, -3, 1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (n-1)^2-2 = A008865(n-1) for n >= 5 and a(n) = 0 for n <= 4.

EXAMPLE

For n = 3 we have A000290(3) = 9, A000290(4) = 16; there is no k such that 16 - 9 = 7 = (9 mod k), hence a(3) = 0.

For n = 5 we have A000290(5) = 25, A000290(6) = 36; 14 is the largest k such that 36 - 25 = 11 = (25 mod k), hence a(5) = 14; a(5) = A000290(5) - A005408(5) = 25 - 11 = 14.

For n = 25 we have A000217(25) = 625, A000217(26) = 676; 574 is the largest k such that 676 - 625 = 51 = (625 mod k), hence a(25) = 574; a(25) = A000290(25) - A005408(25) = 574.
