LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..81.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} (-1)^floor((2*i-2)/15).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-15) - a(n-16) for n > 15.

MAPLE

A287793:=n->add((-1)^floor((2*i-2)/15), i=1..n): seq(A287793(n), n=0..200);

MATHEMATICA
