FORMULA

From R. J. Mathar, Apr 20 2010: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-3) for n>2.

G.f.: ( 1+7*x+11*x^2 ) / ( (1-x)*(1+x+x^2) ). (End)

a(n) = (1/9)*(49*(n mod 3)+7*((n+1) mod 3)+((n+2) mod 3)). - Paolo P. Lava, May 14 2010

a(n) = (19 - 16*cos(2*n*Pi/3) - 4*sqrt(3)*sin(2*n*Pi/3))/3. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 29 2016
