Hello seqfans,

Yesterday I made this spreadsheet formula in Excel for calculating
the Mertens function as an invariant:

=if(row()>=column(); if(row()<=3; 1; if(column()=1; randbetween(-9;  
9); if(or(column()=2; column()=3); sum(indirect(address(row();  
column()-1; 4)))-sum(indirect(address(row()-column()+1; column();  
4)&":"&address(row()-1; column(); 4); 4));  
sum(indirect(address(row()-column()+2; column()-1;  
4)&":"&address(row()-1; column()-1; 4);  
4))-sum(indirect(address(row()-column()+1; column();  
4)&":"&address(row()-1; column(); 4); 4))))); 0)

Does anyone know how to translate it into oeis-language?

The formula can be found in this table:
