FORMULA

G.f.: (1+6*x^2+x^4)/((1-x)^5*(1-x^2)^4) [ N. J. A. Sloane ]

l(c, r) = 1/2 binomial(c+r-3, r) + 1/2 d(c, r), where d(c, r) is binomial((c + r - 3)/2, r/2) if c is odd and r is even, 0 if c is even and r is odd, binomial((c + r - 4)/2, r/2) if c is even and r is even, binomial((c + r - 4)/2, (r - 1)/2) if c is odd and r is odd.

a(n) = (1/(2*8!))*(n+2)*(n+4)*(n+6)*(n+8)*((n+1)*(n+3)*(n+5)*(n+7) + 1*3*5*7) - (1/3)*(1/2^6)*(n^3+(27/2)*n^2+56*n+(279/4))*(1/2)*(1-(-1)^n) [Yosu Yurramendi Jun 23 2013]
