From Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 04 2013: (Start)
This sequence a(n), n>=1, appears in the formula 2*sin(2*Pi/n) = R(p(n), x) modulo C(a(n), x), with x = rho(a(n)) = 2*cos(Pi/a(n)), the R-polynomials given in A127672 and the minimal C-polynomials of rho given in A187360. This follows from the identity 2*sin(2*Pi/n) = 2*cos(Pi*p(n)/a(n)) with gcd(p(n), a(n)) = 1. For p(n) see a comment on A106609,
Because R is an integer polynomial it shows that 2*sin(2*Pi/n) is an integer in the algebraic number field Q(rho(a(n))) of degree delta(a(n)) (the degree of C(a(n), x)), with delta(k) = A055034(k). This degree is given in A093819. For the coefficients of 2*sin(2*Pi/n) in the power basis of Q(rho(a(n))) see A231189 . (End)

FORMULA
a(n) = A106609(n-4) + A106609(n+4) with A106609(-4)=-1, A106609(-3)=-3, A106609(-2)=-1, A106609(-1)=-1.
a(n) = 2*a(n-8) -a(n-16).
a(2n+1) = A016825(n), a(2n) = A145979(n-2) for n>1, a(0)=0, a(2)=2.
a(4n) = A022998(n).
a(4n+1) = A017089(n).
a(4n+2) = A016825(n).
a(4n+3) = A017137(n).

From Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 04 2013: (Start)
a(n) = 2*n if n is odd; if n is even then a(n) is n if n/2 == 1, 3, 5, 7 (mod 8), it is n/2 if n/2 == 0, 4 (mod 8) and it is n/4 if n/2 == 2, 6 (mod 8). This leads to the given G.f..
With c(n) = A178182(n), n>=1, a(n) = c(n)/2 if c(n) is even and c(n) if c(n) is odd. This leads to the preceding formula. (End)
EXAMPLE
For the first formula: a(0)=-1+1=0, a(1)=-3+5=2, a(2)=-1+3=2, a(3)=-1+7=6, a(4)=0+1=1.
