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”).

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

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

FORMULA

a(n) = abs(n - 16*round(n/16)).

G.f.: x*(1 + x)*(1 + x^2)*(1 + x^4)/((1 - x)*(1 + x^8)). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Dec 10 2016

a(n) = a(n-1)-a(n-8)+a(n-9). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Nov 18 2021

a(n) = a(n-16) for n >= 16. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 07 2022
