COMMENTS

This is essentially the p-INVERT of (1,1,1,1,1,...) for p(S) = (1 - 2 S); see A291000.  - Clark Kimberling, Aug 24 2017

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..27.

FORMULA

a(n) = (4/27)*(n+1)*3^n for n >= 2.

G.f.: z*(1-z)^2/(1-3*z)^2.

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..ceiling(n/2)} k*A120924(n,k).

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 4 because in the 9 ternary words of length 2, namely 00, 01, 02, 10, 11, 12, 20, 21 and 22, we have altogether 4 isolated 0's.

MAPLE

1, seq(4*(n+1)*3^n/27, n=2..28);

CROSSREFS
