Table of n, a(n) for n=1..74.

Michael Somos, Rational Function Multiplicative Coefficients

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: x * (1 - 2*x) / (1 - x^2) = x / (1 + 2*x / (1 - 3*x / (2 - x))).

E.g.f.: (exp(x) - 1)*(3/exp(x) - 1)/2.

a(n) is multiplicative with b(2^e) = -2 if e>0, b(p^e) = 1 otherwise.

Moebius transform is length 2 sequence [1, -3].

a(n) = -(1 + 3*(-1)^n)/2 if n>=1.

a(2*n) = -2, a(2*n + 1) = 1, a(0) = 0.

a(n) = -(-1)^n * A134451(n) for all n in Z.

a(n) = a(n+2) = -(-1)^n * A000034(n-1) = -A168361(n+1) for n>=1.

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x - 2*x^2 + x^3 - 2*x^4 + x^5 - 2*x^6 + x^7 - 2*x^8 + ...
