FORMULA

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-2*a(n-2) = a(n-2)-a(n-1)+2*A020727(n-1) = 2*A006012(n) = 4*A007052(n-1).

For n>2, a(n) = floor((2+sqrt(2))*a(n-1)).

G.f.: 2*(1-2*x)/(1-4*x+2*x^2).

a(n)=2^(2*n)*[cos(Pi/8)^(2*n)+cos(3*Pi/8)^2*n]; also, a(n)=3*a(n-1)+Sum{k=1..n-2} a(k), for n>1, with a(0)=2, a(1)=4. - L. Edson Jeffery, Apr 08 2011
