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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

What is the correct name for the rational sequence c(n) = 1, -1/2, 0, -1/4, 0, 1/2, 0, -17/8, 0, 31/2, 0, ... (a variant of the second fractional Euler numbers)?

Its binomial transform is f(n) = 1, 1/2, 0, -3/4, -2, -7/2, -4, -23/8, -6, -45/2, -8, 655/4, -10, ... = a(n)/A006519(n+1).

FORMULA

By definition f(0) - c(0), f(1) + c(1), f(2) - c(2), f(3) + c(3), ... is an autosequence of the first kind, here 1 - 1 = 0, 1/2 - 1/2 = 0, 0 - 0 = 0, -3/4 - 1/4 = -1, -2 - 0 = -2, -7/2 + 1/2 = -3, ... i.e., t(n) = 0, 0, followed by -A001477(n), not in the OEIS, but the corresponding autosequence of the second kind is: A199969 = 0, 0, -2, -3, -4, ... Hence f(n) from c(n) and t(n).
