%N a(0)=1, a(1)=1, a(2)=1, a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + a(n-2) + 1.

%C a(n) or a(n+1) gives the number of times certain simple recursive procedures are called to effect a reversal of a sequence of n elements (including both the top-level call and any subsequent recursive calls). See example and program lines.

%e See the Python, Erlang (myrev), Pari (rev) and Forth definitions (REV3) given at Program section.

%e Pari, Python and Erlang functions are called a(n+1) times for the list of length n, while Forth word REV3 is called a(n) times if there are n elements in the parameter stack.
