COMMENTS

Old name was: a(n) = 2*Abs[(1/2)*(-1+(-2)^n)-(2/3)*(2+(-2)^n)*UnitStep[ -1+n]].

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..36.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,2).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1)+2*a(n-2) for n>4. G.f.: (4*x^4+2*x^3+10*x^2-2*x-3) / ((x+1)*(2*x-1)). [Colin Barker, Jan 04 2013]
