FORMULA

Empirical G.f.: x*(1+3*x+x^2)/(1-4*x^2+4*x^4). - Colin Barker, Jan 03 2012

Conjecture: a(n) = (6*r*n+(1+3*(1-r)*n)*(1-(-1)^n))*r^(n-1)/8, where r=sqrt(2). - Bruno Berselli, Jan 03 2011

EXAMPLE

Let esf abbreviate "elementary symmetric function".  Then

0th esf of {1}:  1

1st esf of {1,2}:  1+2=3

2nd esf of {1,2,1} is 1*2+1*1+2*1=5

MATHEMATICA

f[k_] := 1 + Mod[k + 1, 2];

t[n_] := Table[f[k], {k, 1, n}]

a[n_] := SymmetricPolynomial[n - 1, t[n]]

Table[a[n], {n, 1, 33}]  (* A203150 *)
