 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS From Robert Israel, Aug 20 2017: (Start) -3 <= a(n) <= 3. It appears that:    a(n) = -3 if and only if a(n+1) = 3.    if a(n) = -2 then a(n+1) = 0, 1 or 2.    if a(n) = -1 or 0 then a(n+1) = -1, 0, 1 or 2.    if a(n) = 1 then a(n+1) = -3, -1, 0 or 1.    if a(n) = 2 then a(n+1) = -3 or -2.    if a(n) = 3 then a(n+1) = -2 or -1.
