FORMULA

Periodic with period 8.

a(n) = A080709(n-1) for n >= 5 and a(n) = A000221(n-1) = A008460(n+4) for all n >= 4. - M. F. Hasler, May 24 2009; edited and extended Apr 27 2018

From Colin Barker, Apr 28 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(8 + 64*x + 52*x^2 + 29*x^3 + 85*x^4 + 89*x^5 + 145*x^6 + 42*x^7 + 12*x^8 - 60*x^9 - 36*x^10 + 8*x^11 - 27*x^12) / ((1 - x)*(1 + x)*(1 + x^2)*(1 + x^4)).

a(n) = a(n-8) for n>13.
