FORMULA

a(n) = abs(A077986(n)) = A077849(n)-A077849(n-1) = |A077922(n)|+|A077922(n-1)| = sum(k=0, n, A077997(k)). - Ralf Stephan, Feb 02 2004

a(n)=sum(m=1..n+1, sum(k=0..n-m+1, (sum(j=0..k, binomial(j,n-m-3*k+2*j+1)*binomial(k,j)))* binomial(m+k-1,m-1))). [Vladimir Kruchinin, Oct 11 2011]

G.f. for sequence with 1 prepended: 1/( 1 - Sum_(k>=0, x*(x+x^2+x^3)^k ) ). [Joerg Arndt, Sep 30 2012]

G.f.: Q(0)/2, where Q(k) = 1 + 1/(1- x*(4*k+2 + x+x^2)/(x*(4*k+4 + x+x^2) + 1/Q(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 04 2013
