FORMULA

After the initial block of seven 1's, the sequence is quasi-periodic with period 49, increasing by 7 after each block.

From Colin Barker, Jan 31 2020: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 + x^7 + x^14 + x^21 + x^28 + x^35 + x^42 + x^43 - x^44 + x^45 - x^46 + x^47 - x^48 - x^50 + x^51 - x^52 + x^53 - x^54 + x^55) / ((1 - x)^2*(1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + x^5 + x^6)*(1 + x^7 + x^14 + x^21 + x^28 + x^35 + x^42)).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-49) - a(n-50) for n>56.
