COMMENTS

Number of 2 X 2 tiles in all tilings of a 3 X (n+1) rectangle with 1 X 1 and 2 X 2 square tiles. - Emeric Deutsch, Feb 18 2007

The terms of this sequence have a primitive divisor for all terms beyond the 4th if and only if n is not of the form 4k+2, for some nonnegative integer k. - Anthony Flatters (Anthony.Flatters(AT)uea.ac.uk), Aug 17 2007

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/27)*((3*n + 2)*2^(n + 2) - (6*n + 8)*(-1)^n).

a(n) = 2 * A073371(n-1).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor((n+1)/2)} k*2^k*binomial(n+1-k,k). - Emeric Deutsch, Feb 18 2007

MAPLE

a:=n->n/9*2^(n+2)+1/27*2^(n+3)-2*n/9*(-1)^n-8/27*(-1)^n: seq(a(n), n=1..30); # Emeric Deutsch, Feb 18 2007
