Second convolution of A010892.

Convolution of A099254 with A010892.

a(n) equals the coefficient of x^2 of the characteristic polynomial of the (n+2)X(n+2) tridiagonal matrix with 1's along the main diagonal, the superdiagonal, and the subdiagonal (see Mathematica code below). [John M. Campbell, Jul 10 2011]

FORMULA

a(n)=sum( A128503(n,m),m=0..floor(n/2)), n>=0.

G.f.: 1/(1-x+x^2)^3.

a(n) = (floor(n/3)+1)*(floor(n/3)-floor((n-1)/3)+(3/2)*(floor(n/3)+2)*(3*floor((n+1)/3)-n))*(-1)^n. - Tani Akinari, Jul 03 2013
