lim(n->Infinity, a(2n+1)/a(2n))=1/49*(219073+154908*sqrt(2))

lim(n->Infinity, a(2n)/a(2n-1))=1/49*(3649+2580*sqrt(2))

FORMULA

Contribution from Ant King, Dec 16 2011: (Start)

a(n) = 1331714*a(n-2) - a(n-4) + 249696.

a(n) = a(n-1) + 1331714*a(n-2) - 1331714*a(n-3) - a(n-4) + a(n-5).

a(n) = 1/96*((11-6*sqrt(2)*(-1)^n)*(1+sqrt(2))^(8*n-6)+(11+6*sqrt(2)*(-1)^n)*(1-sqrt(2))^(8*n-6)-18).

a(n) = floor(1/96*(11-6*sqrt(2)*(-1)^n)*(1+sqrt(2))^(8*n-6)).

GF: x*(1+175*x+243535*x^2+5945*x^3+40*x^4)/((1-x)*(1-1154*x+x^2)*(1+1154*x+x^2)).
