Table of n, a(n) for n=0..74.

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) is the same as the sign of cos((n+1)*arctan(Pi/log(Pi/2))). We can also use arctan(Pi/log(Pi/2))/Pi ~ 1/2 ~ 5/11 ~ 3776/8307 ~ 3781/8318 and so on. If the numerator is odd, we have, for example, a(n) = -a(n+2) or a(n) = -a(n+11) with some counterexamples. For even numerators we have, for example, a(n) = a(n+8307), also with some counterexamples.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = -a(12) = a(23) = -1.

MAPLE
