FORMULA

a(1)=2, a(2)=17, a(3)=40, a(2n+2) = 3*a(2n+1)^2 + 8*a(2n+1) + 6, a(2n+3) = 3*a(2n+1)^3 + 12*a(2n+1)^2 + 17*a(2n+1) + 8. - Sean A. Irvine, Sep 16 2011

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 2; a[2] = 17; a[3] = 40;

a[n_] := a[n] = If[EvenQ[n], 3*a[n-1]^2 + 8*a[n-1] + 6, 3*a[n-2]^3 + 12*a[n-2]^2 + 17*a[n-2] + 8];
