COMMENTS

Form the graph with matrix A = [1,1,1,1; 1,0,0,0; 1,0,0,0; 1,0,0,1]. Then a(n) counts closed walks of length n at the degree 5 vertex. - Paul Barry, Oct 02 2004

Equals the INVERT transform of (1, 3, 1, 1, 1, ...). - Gary W. Adamson, Apr 27 2009

a(n) is also the number of vertex-transitive cover graphs of lattice quotients of essential lattice congruences of the weak order on the symmetric group S_{n+1}. See Table 1 in the Hoang/Mütze reference in the Links section. - Torsten Muetze, Nov 28 2019

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,2,-2).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 - x)/(1 - 2*x - 2*x^2 + 2*x^3).

Recurrence: a(1) = 1, a(0) = 1, a(2) = 4, 2*a(n) - 2*a(n+1) - 2*a(n+2) + a(n+3) = 0.

a(n) = Sum_{alpha=RootOf(2*Z^3-2*Z^2-2*Z+1)} (1/37)*(5 - 9*alpha^2 + 12*alpha)* alpha^(-1 - n).

a(n) = 2*a(n-2) + Sum_{i=0..n-1} a(i). - Yuchun Ji, Dec 29 2018
