FORMULA

a(n) = floor(3^n*5/4).

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

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) + 1*a(n-2) - 3*a(n-3).

a(n) = (5*3^n + (-1)^n - 2)/4. - Paul Barry, May 19 2003

a(n) = a(n-2) + 10*3^(n-2) for n > 1.

a(n+2) - a(n) = A005052(n).

a(2*n) = Sum_{j=1..n+1} A062107(2*j).

a(2*n+1) = Sum_{j=1..n+1} A062107(2*j+1).

With a leading 0, this is a(n) = (5*3^n - 6 + 4*0^n - 3*(-1)^n)/12, the binomial transform of A084183. - Paul Barry, May 19 2003

Convolution of 3^n and {1, 0, 2, 0, 2, 0, ...}. a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} ((1 + (-1)^k) - 0^k)*3^(n-k) = Sum_{k=0..n} ((1 + (-1)^(n-k)) - 0^(n-k))3^k. - Paul Barry, Jul 19 2004

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2) + 2, a(0)=1, a(1)=3. - Zerinvary Lajos, Apr 28 2008

EXAMPLE

11 is a term since A081249(10)/10^2 = 11/100 = 0.110, A081249(11)/11^2 = 13/121 = 0.107, A081249(12)/12^2 = 16/144 = 0.111.
