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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

FORMULA

Equals Sum_{k>=1} x^(k^2)*(1+x^k)/(1-x^k) where x = 1/4 (the Lambert series evaluated at 1/4). - Joerg Arndt, Jun 03 2020

Equals Sum_{k>=1} d(k)/4^k, where d(k) is the number of divisors of k (A000005). - Amiram Eldar, Jun 22 2020
