MATHEMATICA

M[1] = {{1}}; M[m_] := M[m] = {{M[m - 1], Transpose[M[m - 1]]}, {Array[0&, {2^(m - 2), 2^(m - 2)}], M[m - 1]}} // ArrayFlatten;

W[m_] := M[m] + Transpose[M[m]];

T[m_, 1] := 2^(m - 1); T[1, n_] := 2^(n - 1); T[m_, n_] := MatrixPower[ W[m], n - 1] // Flatten // Total;

a[n_] := T[n - 2, n]/2;
