COMMENTS

Binomial transform of A029578(n+2). Row sums of number triangle A106471.

a(n) is the number of parts equal to 1 or 2 in all the compositions of n + 1. Example: a(2)=7 because in the compositions [3], [1,2], [2,1], and [1,1,1] we have 0 + 2 + 2 + 3 = 7 parts equal to 1 or 2. Equivalently, a(n) = Sum_{k>=0} k*A296559(n+1,k). - Emeric Deutsch Dec 16 2017

FORMULA

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

a(0)=1, a(1)=3, and a(n) = (3*n + 8)*2^(n-3), for n>=2. [simplified by Ralf Stephan, Nov 16 2010]

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2) for n > 3. - Colin Barker, Dec 16 2017
