FORMULA

G.f.: (x^5 - 3x^4 + x^3 + x^2)/(-x^6 + 3x^4 - 7x^2 + 1).

a(n) = 7*a(n-2) - 3*a(n-4) + a(n-6); a(0)=0, a(1)=0, a(2)=1, a(3)=1, a(4)=4, a(5)=8. - Harvey P. Dale, Jun 29 2011

MAPLE

G:=(x^5-3*x^4+x^3+x^2)/(-x^6+3*x^4-7*x^2+1): Gser:=series(G, x=0, 35): seq(coeff(Gser, x, n), n=0..32); # Emeric Deutsch, Apr 22 2006
