Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Ramanujan theta functions: f(q) (see A121373), phi(q) (A000122), psi(q) (A010054), chi(q) (A000700).

This is an example of the quintuple product identity in the form f(a*b^4, a^2/b) - (a/b) * f(a^4*b, b^2/a) = f(-a*b, -a^2*b^2) * f(-a/b, -b^2) / f(a, b) where a = x^5, b = x^3.

FORMULA

Expansion of f(x, x^7) * chi(-x) in powers of x where f(,) is Ramanujan's two-variable theta function and chi() is a Ramanujan theta function.

G.f.: Sum_{k in Z} x^(12*k^2 + 5*k) - x^(12*k^2 + 11*k + 2).

a(n) = -A010815(2*n + 1).
