FORMULA

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

With a=2+sqrt(3) and b=2-sqrt(3), a(n)=sqrt(3/2)(a^(n+1/2)+b^(n+1/2)).

a(n) = sqrt(3(11+12*A082840(n)+4*A082840(n)^2)).

a(n) = sqrt((3/2)(A003500(2n+1)+2)).

a(n)-a(n-1) = 6*A001353(n).

a(n) == 3 (mod 6).

a(n) = 3 * A001835(n+1).

MAPLE

a:=proc(n) option remember; if n=0 then 3 elif n=1 then 9 else 4*a(n-1)-a(n-2); fi; end: seq(a(n), n=0..40); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jan 21 2017
