FORMULA
Euler transform of length 10 sequence [2, 0, 1, -2, 1, -1, 0, 2, 0, -1].
a(n) is multiplicative with a(2) = 2, a(4) = 5, a(2^e) = 3*2^(e-2) if e>2, a(p^e) = p^e otherwise. [corrected by Amiram Eldar, Dec 29 2022]
G.f.: f(x) - f(-x^4) where f(x) := x / (1 - x)^2.
G.f.: x * (1 + x^3) * (1 + x^5) / ((1 - x)^2 * (1 + x^4)^2).
a(n) = -a(-n) for all n in Z.
Dirichlet g.f.: zeta(s-1)*(1+1/4^s-4/8^s). - Amiram Eldar, Dec 29 2022
EXAMPLE
G.f. = x + 2*x^2 + 3*x^3 + 5*x^4 + 5*x^5 + 6*x^6 + 7*x^7 + 6*x^8 + 9*x^9 + ...
