FORMULA

From Ant King, Oct 24 2012: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) +3*a(n-3) -3*a(n-4) -3*a(n-6) +3*a(n-7) +a(n-9) -a(n-10).

a(n) = 3*a(n-3) -3*a(n-6) +a(n-9) +192.

Sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = log(2)/2 + Pi/4 + 5*Pi^2/24 - 2 - C = 0.27217..., where C is Catalan’s constant (A006752).

G.f.: 2*x*(3+6*x+11*x^2+34*x^3+17*x^4+13*x^5+11*x^6+x^7) / ((1-x)^4*(1+x +x^2)^3). (End)

a(n) = A002411(A004772(n+1)). - Bruno Berselli, Oct 24 2012
