FORMULA

If 1 <= n <= 4, a(n)=1. If 5 <= n <= 7, then a(n)=n-3. If n>7 then a(n)=a(n-3-a(n-1)) + a(n-4-a(n-2)) + a(n-5-a(n-3)) + a(n-6-a(n-4))

g.f.: A(z) = z * (1 - z^3) / (1 - z) * sum(prod(z^3 * (1 - z^(4 * [i])) / (1 - z^[i]), i=1..n), n=0..infinity), where [i] = (4^i - 1) / 3.

MAPLE

a := proc(n)

option remember;

if n <= 4 then return 1 end if;

if n <= 7 then return n-3 end if;

return add(a(n - i - 2 - a(n - i)), i = 1 .. 4)

end proc
