COMMENTS

Define a triangle with T(n, 1) = n*(n-1) + 1 and T(n,n) = n for n = 1, 2, 3. ... The interior terms T(r, c) = T(r - 1, c) + T(r - 2, c - 1); this triangle will give the sum of terms in row(n) = a(n).  The rows begin 1; 3 2; 7 3 3; 13 6 5 4; 21 13 8 7 5 having row(n) sums 1, 5, 13, 28, 54. - J. M. Bergot, Feb 17 2013

a(n) = 7*(F(n+1)-1) + 4*F(n) - 3*n; F(n) = A000045 (Fibonacci), G.F. x*(1+2*x)/((1-x-x^2)*(1-x)^2) - Wolfdieter Lang.

a(n) - a(n-1) = A101220(3, 1, n). - Ross La Haye, May 31 2006

a(n+1)-a(n) = A027961(n+1). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 21 2013

From Colin Barker, Mar 11 2017: (Start)

a(n) = -4 + (2^(-1-n)*((1-sqrt(5))^n*(-15+7*sqrt(5)) + (1+sqrt(5))^n*(15+7*sqrt(5)))) / sqrt(5) - 3*(1+n).

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) - a(n-3) + a(n-4) for n>4.
