COMMENTS

a(n) equals the absolute value of the imaginary part of the determinant of the (4n+2) X (4n+2) matrix with i's along the superdiagonal (where i is the imaginary unit) and 2, 3, 4, ..., 4n+2 along the subdiagonal, and 0's everywhere else (see Mathematica code below). - John M. Campbell, Jun 04 2011
