COMMENTS

Half the number of n X 3 binary arrays with a path of adjacent 1's and a path of adjacent 0's from top row to bottom row.

Indices of A017245 = 9*n + 7 = 7, 16, 25, 34, for submitted A153819 = 16, 34, 88,. A153819(n) = 9*a(n) + 7 = 18*F(2*n+1) -2; F(n) = Fibonacci = A000045, 2's = A007395. Other recurrence: a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2) + a(n-3). - Paul Curtz, Jan 02 2009

FORMULA

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 3, a(2) = 9, a(3) = 25; a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-3) + a(n-4).

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 1 for n>1, a(1) = 3, a(0) = 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 02 2006

From R. J. Mathar, Feb 23 2009: (Start)

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

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

a(n) = 1 + 2*Sum_{k=0..n} Fibonacci(2*k) = 1+2*A027941(n). - Gary Detlefs, Dec 07 2010

a(n) = (2^(-n)*(-5*2^n -(3-sqrt(5))^n*(-5+sqrt(5)) +(3+sqrt(5))^n*(5+sqrt(5))))/5. - Colin Barker, Nov 02 2016
