COMMENTS
A214282(n) and -A214283(n) are companions. Separately or together, they have many links with the Catalan's numbers A000108(n). Examples:
A214282(n+1) - 2*A214282(n) = -1, -1, 1, 0, -2, -5, 5, 0, -14, -42, 42, 0, -132, ....
2*A214283(n) - A214283(n+1) = 1, 0, -1, -2, 2, 0, -5, -14, 14, 0, -42, -132, 132, ....
A214282(n) + A214283(n) = 1, 0, -1, 0, 2, 0, -5, 0, 14, 0, -42,... (A126120).
The companion to a(n) is b(n) = -A214283(n)/(1,1,1,1,2,2,5,5,...) = 0, 1, 2, 3, 2, 5, 4, 7, 4, 9, 6, ....
a(n) - b(n) = A056594(n).
Discovered as a(n) = A214282(n+1)/A000108([n/2]). See abs(A129996(n-2)).
