FORMULA

a(n) = 2 + 4*(n - 2 - floor((n - 2)/4)).

From Chai Wah Wu, Jul 17 2016: (Start)

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-4) - a(n-5) for n > 5.

G.f.: 2*x*(x^4 + 2*x^3 + 2*x^2 + 1)/(x^5 - x^4 - x + 1). (End)

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 17 2016: (Start)

E.g.f.: 2 + (3*x - 2)*sinh(x) + 3*(x - 1)*cosh(x) + sin(x) + cos(x).

a(n) = (6*n - (-1)^n + 2*sqrt(2)*sin(Pi*n/2 + Pi/4) - 5)/2. (End)
