A318245 Scaled g.f. T(v) = Sum_{n>=0} a(n)*(3*v/64)^n satisfies 9*(5*v-4)*T + d/dv(16*v*(v-1)*(3*v-4)*T') = 0, and a(0)=1; sequence gives a(n). 6

The linked document "Proof Certificate" explains that period function T(v) measures precession of the J-vector along an algebraic sphere curve with local cyclic C_4 symmetry (also cf. Examples and A186375).

3*n^2*a(n) - 4*(28*n^2-28*n+9)*a(n-1) + 64*(4*n-5)*(4*n-3)*a(n-2) = 0.

For n > 0, a(n) mod 3 = 0 (conjecture, tested up to n=3*10^6).


Period function T_{O}(w): Take T_{C3}(u) and T_{C4}(v) from A186375 and A318245 respectively. Set (u,v)=(w-2/3,2-w), with u in [0,1/3], v in [0,1], and w in [2/3,2]. Define piecewise function T_{O}(w) = T_{C3}(w-2/3) if w in [2/3,1] or T_{O}(w) = T_{C4}(2-w) if w in [1,2].

Geometric Singular Points: Construct a family of algebraic sphere curves by intersecting a sphere 1=X^2+Y^2+Z^2 with the octahedral surface w=2*(X^4+Y^4+Z^4). Four cube vertex axes--(x+y+z, -x+y+z, x-y+z, x+y-z)--intersect the sphere in eight circular points with w=2/3. Three octahedron vertex axes--(x, y, z)--intersect the sphere in six circular points with w=2. Six cuboctahedron vertex axes--(x+y, x-y, y+z, y-z, z+x, z-x)--intersect the sphere in twelve hyperbolic points with w=1.
