Thomas, That's very interesting!
The thing to do would be to add a line like this to the FORMULA section of
each of the sequence involved, saying something like
It appears that -3*A138521(n) + 15*A138520(n) - 16*A213265(n) +
4*A261321(n) = 0. - ~~~~
where of course the four tildes at the end get replaced with your name and
date.
But you realize that by focusing on Ramanujan, you have entered into a
field, elliptic functions and theta series, where there are
an incredibly huge number of known identities, going back hundreds of years
- see Tannery and Molk's 1893 volumes (available from Chelsea).
Even specialists in the field have been known to refer to the "morass" of
such identities.
Michael Somos (one of the OEIS editors, and formerly on this list - and may
still be) is an expert.
So your Ramanujan-based identities may well be new, and should be put on
record somewhere (perhaps create a page on the OEIS Wiki where you can list
them all). But you might find more gold nuggets
if you picked a field which is newer. Any branch of combinatorics, for
instance. Graph theory, say.
