FORMULA

a(n) = ((sqrt(2)+1)^(2*n+1) - (sqrt(2)-1)^(2*n+1) + 2*(-1)^n)/4.

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) + 5*a(n-2) - a(n-3). - Paul Curtz, May 17 2008

G.f.: (1-x)^2/((1+x)*(1-6*x+x^2)). - R. J. Mathar, Sep 17 2008

a(n) = A078057(n)*A001333(n). - R. J. Mathar, Jul 08 2009

a(n) = A001333(n)*A001333(n+1).

From Peter Bala, May 01 2012: (Start)

a(n) = (-1)^n*R(n,-4), where R(n,x) is the n-th row polynomial of A211955.

a(n) = (-1)^n*1/u*T(n,u)*T(n+1,u) with u = sqrt(-1) and T(n,x) the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind.

a(n) = (-1)^n + 4*Sum_{k = 1..n} (-1)^(n-k)*8^(k-1)*binomial(n+k,2*k).

Recurrence equations: a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 4*(-1)^n, with a(0) = 1 and a(1) = 3; a(n)*a(n-2) = a(n-1)*(a(n-1)+4*(-1)^n).

Sum_{k >= 0} (-1)^k/a(k) = 1/sqrt(2).

1 - 2*(Sum_{k = 0..n} (-1)^k/a(k))^2 = (-1)^(n+1)/A090390(n+1).
