I suggest you explain your notation on that page.  For example, does

A133010 A133011 A135297 A286707    -->    1 1 -1 1    (4)

mean A133010(n) + A133011(n) - A135297(n) + A286707(n) = 0?
What is the 4?

This may be a rather unfortunate example to start with (or perhaps we 
should say, it nicely illustrates the pitfalls of these algorithms). It is 
obvious from the definitions that A133010(n) + A133011(n) = 1. But the 
comment to A286707 states:

  a(n) is not the same as A135297(n) - 1.

So although this relationship may be true for the values given in the Data 
sections, it's not true in general.
