FORMULA

a(n) = 2*(n+2) * 4^(n-3) - 4*(2*n-5) * C(2*n-6,n-3) for n>=2, a(1)=1.

G.f.: x*(1-6*x+10*x^2-4*x^2*sqrt(1-4*x))/(1-4*x)^2 (See theorem 3.1 in Albert et al. reference). [Joerg Arndt, Jun 21 2011]

PROG

(Pari) a(n) = if(n<=1, n, 2*(n+2) * 4^(n-3) - 4*(2*n-5) * binomial(2*n-6, n-3)); /* Joerg Arndt, Jun 21 2011 */
