FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(1-2*x-x^4). - Philippe Deléham, Dec 02 2006

a(n) = Sum_{m=0..n} Sum_{j=0..(n-m)/3} binomial(n-m+(-3)*j,j)*binomial(n-3*j,m). - Vladimir Kruchinin, May 23 2011

O.g.f.: exp( Sum {n>=1} ( (1 + sqrt(1 + x^2))^n + (1 - sqrt(1 + x^2))^n ) * x^n/n ). Cf. A008998. - Peter Bala, Dec 22 2014
