FORMULA
G.f.: 1/(1 +x +x^2 +x^3).
Euler transform of length 4 sequence [ -1, 0, 0, 1]. - Michael Somos, Dec 12 2012
a(n) = a(n+4) = -a(1-n). |a(n)| = A133872(n). REVERT transform is A036765. INVERT transform is A077962. - Michael Somos, Dec 12 2012
A038505(n+2) = p(-1) where p(x) is the unique degree-n polynomial such that p(k) = a(k) for k = 0, 1, ..., n. - Michael Somos, Dec 12 2012
From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 22 2015: (Start)
a(n) +a(n-1) +a(n-2) +a(n-3) = 0.
a(n) = (-1)^n/2 +(-1)^(n/2 +1/4 -(-1)^n/4)/2. (End)
EXAMPLE
G.f. = 1 - x + x^4 - x^5 + x^8 - x^9 + x^12 - x^13 + x^16 - x^17 + x^20 - x^21 + ...
