 A334044 a(1) = 0, and for any n > 1, a(n) is the number of points of the set { (k, a(k)), k = 1..n-2 } that are not visible from the point (n-1, a(n-1)). 2

%C For any i and k such that i < k: the point (i, a(i)) is visible from the point (k, a(k)) if there are no j such that i < j < k and the three points (i, a(i)), (j, a(j)), (k, a(k)) are aligned.

%e For n = 6:

%e - we consider the following points:

%e . . . X .

%e (4,1)

%e X X X . X

%e (1,0) (2,0) (3,0) (5,0)

%e - the points (1,0) and (2,0) are not visible from (5,0)

%e (as they are hidden by (3,0)),

%e - whereas the points (3,0) and (4,1) are visible from (5,0)

%e - hence a(6) = 2.

%o (PARI) g(z) = z/gcd(real(z), imag(z))
