FORMULA

G.f.: (-3*x^3 - 4*x^2 + x + 1)/(4*x^4 - 6*x^2 + 1)

a(n + 4) = 6*a(n + 2) - 4*a(n) [From Richard Choulet, Dec 06 2008]

a(n) = ( - 1/20*5^(1/2) + 1/16*5^(1/2)*2^(1/2) - 1/16*2^(1/2) + 1/4)*(sqrt(3 + sqrt(5)))^n + (1/20*5^(1/2) + 1/16*5^(1/2)*2^(1/2) + 1/16*2^(1/2) + 1/4)*(sqrt(3 - sqrt(5)))^n + ( - 1/20*5^(1/2) - 1/16*5^(1/2)*2^(1/2) + 1/16*2^(1/2) + 1/4)*( - (sqrt(3 + sqrt(5))))^n + (1/20*5^(1/2) - 1/16*5^(1/2)*2^(1/2) - 1/16*2^(1/2) + 1/4)*( - (sqrt(3 - sqrt(5))))^n [From Richard Choulet, Dec 07 2008]
