FORMULA

a(n) = 2^(n-2) * a(4-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 05 2017

0 = 8*a(n)^2 + 2*a(n+1)^2 - a(n+2)^2 - a(n+3)^2 for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 05 2017

2*a(n) + a(n+1) = a(n+2) or a(n+3). - Michael Somos, Jan 05 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x^3 + x^4 + x^5 + 3*x^6 + x^7 + 5*x^8 + 7*x^9 + 3*x^10 + 17*x^11 + ...

a(3)=1 since 2^3=8=7*1^2+1^2, a(6)=3 since 2^6=64=7*3^2+1^2.
