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”).

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A296063 a(n) is the smallest number (in absolute value) not yet in the sequence such that the arithmetic mean of the first n terms a(1), a(2), ..., a(n) is an integer. Preference is given to positive values of a(n); a(1)=1; 0 not allowed. 3

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

FORMULA

a(n) = (-1)^(n+1)*A109613(n+1). - Michel Marcus, Dec 05 2017

From Colin Barker, Mar 14 2020: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 + x^2) / ((1 - x)*(1 + x)^2).

a(n) = -a(n-1) + a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>3.
