From R. J. Mathar, Oct 12 2010: (Start)

Apparently the row n=3 of an array T(n,k) counting walks with k steps on a n X n board starting at an edge position next to a corner, each step to one of the <=4 adjacent squares:

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..26.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,8).

FORMULA

a(n) = (1 + (-1)^n)8^floor((n+1)/2)/2 + 3(1-(-1)^n)8^floor(n/2)/2;

a(n) = 2^(3n/2)(3sqrt(2)/8+1/2 - (3sqrt(2)/8-1/2)(-1)^n).

a(2n+1) = 2a(2n) + 2a(2n-1) + 2a(2n-2);

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

a(n+3) = a(n+2)*a(n+1)/a(n). [Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 04 2011]
