FORMULA

a(n) = (2/sqrt(3))*( [1+sqrt(3)]^n - [1-sqrt(3)]^n ), n>=0. - Paolo P. Lava, Jun 10 2008

From Philippe Deléham, Nov 19 2008: (Start)

a(n) = 4*A002605(n).

G.f.: 4x/(1-2x-2x^2). (End)

E.g.f.: (4/sqrt(3))*exp(x)*sinh(sqrt(3)*x). - G. C. Greubel, Oct 31 2016

MATHEMATICA

M = {{1, 1, 1, 1}, {1, 1, 0, 0}, {1, 0, 1, 0}, {1, 0, 0, 1}}; v[1] = {0, 1, 1, 2}; v[n_] := v[n] = M.v[n - 1] a = Table[Abs[v[n][[1]]], {n, 1, 25}]
