FORMULA

a(k) == 1 (mod 2) iff k = 3*n*(n+1) for n>=0 (conjecture).

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 2*x + 2*x^2 + 2*x^3 + 2*x^4 + 2*x^5 + x^6 + 2*x^7 +...

where A(x) = 1/(1-x) + x*(1-x)/((1-x)*(1-x^3)) + x^2*(1-x)*(1-x^2)/((1-x)*(1-x^3)*(1-x^5)) + x^3*(1-x)*(1-x^2)*(1-x^3)/((1-x)*(1-x^3)*(1-x^5)*(1-x^7)) +...

which is a q-series analog of the sum:

Pi/2 = 0!/1 + 1!/(1*3) + 2!/(1*3*5) + 3!/(1*3*5*7) + 4!/(1*3*5*7*9) + 5!/(1*3*5*7*9*11) +...

Odd terms (A202150), located at positions 3*n*(n+1) for n>=0, begin:

[1,1,1,-1,1,-1,1,3,1,-1,1,-1,1,1,1,-1,-1,1,1,1,1,-1,3,-1,1,1,1,...].

PROG

(PARI) {a(n)=polcoeff((1+sum(m=1, n, x^m*prod(k=1, m, (1-x^k)/(1-x^(2*k+1) +x*O(x^n)))))/(1-x+x*O(x^n)), n)}
