FORMULA
From Colin Barker, Jan 31 2020: (Start)
G.f.: x*(1 + x^4 + x^6 - x^7 + x^9 + x^12 + x^13 - x^14 + x^15 - 2*x^16 + x^17 - x^18 + x^19) / ((1 - x)^2*(1 + x)*(1 + x^2)*(1 + x^4)*(1 + x^8)).
a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-16) - a(n-17) for n>20.
(End)
EXAMPLE
The sequence is quasi-periodic with period 16, increasing by 4 after each block:
1 1 1 1
2 2 3 2 2 3 3 3 4 5 4 5 4 5 4 5
6 6 7 6 6 7 7 7 8 9 8 9 8 9 8 9
10 10 11 10 10 11 11 11 12 13 12 13 12 13 12 13
14 14 15 14 14 15 15 15 16 17 16 17 16 17 16 17
