COMMENTS

Construct a graph as follows: form the graph whose adjacency matrix is the tensor product of that of P_3 and [1,1;1,1], then add a loop at each of the extremity nodes. a(n1) counts walks of length n between adjacent nodes.  Paul Barry, Nov 12 2004
The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called pcolored compositions of n. For n >= 2, 9*a(n2) equals the number of 9colored compositions of n with all parts >= 2, such that no adjacent parts have the same color.  Milan Janjic, Nov 26 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = (((1+sqrt(33))/2)^(n+1)  ((1sqrt(33))/2)^(n+1))/sqrt(33).
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} A109466(n,k)*(8)^(nk).  Philippe Deléham, Oct 26 2008
G.f.: 1/(1x8*x^2).  R. J. Mathar, Apr 07 2011
a(n) = (Sum_{1<=k<=n+1, k odd} C(n+1,k)*33^((k1)/2))/2^n.  Vladimir Shevelev, Feb 05 2014
