FORMULA

a(4*k+1) = A000537(k), for k >= 0.

a(4*k+2) = A059270(k), for k >= 0.

a(4*k+3) = A045943(k), for k >= 0.

a(4*k) = k, for k >= 1.

a(n) = ((2*n^4+40*n^3+188*n^2-24*n-558-(2*n^4-24*n^3+188*n^2-792*n-558)*(-1)^n+(2*n^4-20*n^3-130*n^2+772*n+377)*(-1)^((2*n-1+(-1)^n)/4)-(2*n^4+40*n^3-196*n^2-280*n+594)*(-1)^((6*n-1+(-1)^n)/4)-(4*n^3+66*n^2-228*n-217)*(-1)^((10*n-1+(-1)^n)/4)))/8192. - Luce ETIENNE, May 22 2015
