FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^(n-k)*(C(k,n-k)+3*C(k, n-k-1)).

a(n) = 1/6*{2*[n mod 6]-[(n+1) mod 6]-3*[(n+2) mod 6]-2*[(n+3) mod 6]+[(n+4) mod 6]+3*[(n+5) mod 6]}, with n>=1. - Paolo P. Lava, Apr 27 2007

a(n) = a(n-1)-a(n-2); a(0)=1, a(1)=-2 . [Philippe Deléham, Nov 03 2008]

a(n) = A010892(n) -3*A010892(n-1). - R. J. Mathar, Sep 14 2013

a(n) = cos(n*Pi/3) - 5*sin(n*Pi/3)/sqrt(3). - Andres Cicuttin, Apr 06 2016
