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

The sequence has wild fluctuations - see the successive plots in the links. This is typical behavior for a particle whose movement is governed by an arc-sine law (cf. Feller, Chap. III). - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 23 2013

Negative stretches: terms 941-1031 and 13197-1431205. - Hans Havermann, Nov 23 2013

After reaching a local maximum of 21957005755012 at term 24118371, the sequence again descends with the first negative of a third such stretch at term 32437583. - Hans Havermann, Nov 28 2013

All terms are multiples of 4, cf. A008586. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 22 2013

See A232361 and A232359 for peak values and where they occur: max{a(A232359(n)-1), a(A232359(n)+1)} < a(A232359(n)) = A232361(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 24 2013
