FORMULA

Binomial transform is A065096. - Paul Barry, Sep 16 2006

a(n) = (1/Pi)*Integral_{x=2-2*sqrt(2)..2+2*sqrt(2)} x^n*sqrt(-x^2+4x+4)*(x-2)/8. - Paul Barry, Sep 16 2006

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} 2^(n-k)*binomial(n,k)*2^((k-1)/2)*C((k-1)/2+1)*(1-(-1)^k)/2, where C(n)=A000108(n). - Paul Barry, Sep 16 2006

D-finite with recurrence: a(n) = (1/(n+3))*((6*n+8)*a(n-1) - (4*n-4)*a(n-2) - (8*n-16)*a(n-3)) for n > 2, with a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=4. - Tani Akinari, Jul 04 2013

a(n) ~ 2^(n + 1/4) * (1 + sqrt(2))^(n + 3/2) / (sqrt(Pi) * n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 03 2019
