 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS After first 3 terms, agrees with A005010 except for signs; in particular 9 divides a(n) for n >= 3. Suppose r = c/d is a rational number and (a(n)) is the coefficient series for 1/([r] + [2r]x + [3r]x^2 + ...). Let (s(k)) be the increasing sequence of indices n(k) for which a(n(k)) > = 0. In the table below, "yes" indicates that a check of the first 1000 terms indicates that (n(k)) is (eventually) periodic. Column 1 gives selected values of r, and column 2 gives the corresponding coefficient series. 3/2 A279634 yes 4/3 A279675 no 5/3 A279676 no 5/4 A279677 yes 7/4 A279678 yes 6/5 A279778 no 7/5 A279779 no 8/5 A279780 yes 9/5 A279781 no LINKS Clark Kimberling, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-2).
