LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..85.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,0,-1,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1 + x + x^2) / (1 - x + x^3 - x^4).

a(n) = a(n-1) - a(n-3) + a(n-4) for n>3.

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} (-1)^floor((i-1)/3) for n>0.

a(n+1) = a(n) + A130151(n).

a(2n) = 2*A011655(n), a(2n+1) = A109007(n+2).

a(n) = 1 + (1 - (-1)^n)/2 - (-1)^floor((n+1)/3). [Bruno Berselli, Nov 16 2015]

a(n) = sin(n*Pi/6)^2*(11+4*cos(n*Pi/3)+2*cos(2*n*Pi/3))/3. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 17 2016

a(n) = 3/2-1/6*(-1)^n-2/3*((1/2-(1/2*I)*sqrt(3))^n+(1/2+(1/2*I)*sqrt(3))^n) where I=sqrt(-1). - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 17 2016
