FORMULA

G.f. (with offset 0 instead of 1): (1-sqrt(1-4*x+4*x^2-4*x^3+4*x^4))/(2*x). - Paul Barry, May 11 2005

Conjecture: (with offset 0 instead of 1) (n+1)*a(n) +2*(-2*n+1)*a(n-1) +4*(n-2)*a(n-2) +2*(-2*n+7)*a(n-3) +4*(n-5)*a(n-4)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 24 2012

Conjecture follows from the differential equation 4*x^3-3*x^2+2*x-1+(-4*x^4+2*x^3-2*x+1)*g(x)+(4*x^5-4*x^4+4*x^3-4*x^2+x)*g'(x)=0 satisfied by the g.f. - Robert Israel, Nov 02 2016

MAPLE

f:= gfun:-rectoproc({(n+1)*a(n) +2*(-2*n+1)*a(n-1) +4*(n-2)*a(n-2) +2*(-2*n+7)*a(n-3) +4*(n-5)*a(n-4)=0, a(0)=1, a(1)=0, a(2)=1, a(3)=1}, a(n), remember):
