COMMENTS

See A157779 and A157780 for values of Bernoulli(n,1/2), and A027641 and A027642 for values of Bernoulli(n,0).

B(n,1/2) - B(n,0) = 0, 1/2, -1/4, 0, 1/16, 0, -3/64, 0, 17/256, 0, -155/1024, 0, 2073/4096, 0, -38227/16384,... for n>=0.

The sequence of numerators is 0, 1, -1, 0, 1, 0, -3, 0, 17, 0, -155, 0, 2073, 0, -38227, 0, 929569, 0, -28820619, 0, 1109652905,...and appears to contain a mix of A001469 and A036968.

FORMULA

a(n) = A059222(n+1) if n <> 1.

From Colin Barker, Mar 19 2014: (Start)

G.f.: (4*x^5-9*x^3-x^2+2*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x+1)*(2*x-1)*(2*x+1)).

a(n) = 5*a(n-2)-4*a(n-4) for n>5.

a(n) = (1+(-2)^n-(-1)^n+2^n)/2 for n>1. (End).

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1-1, a(1) = 0+1/2, a(2) = -1/12-1/6=-1/4.

MAPLE
