FORMULA

From R. J. Mathar, Mar 17 2009: (Start)

a(n) = -2*a(n-1) -2*a(n-2) -2*a(n-3) +2*a(n-5) +2*a(n-6) +2*a(n-7) +a(n-8).

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

a(n) = ((-2*n^2+4*n+7)*(-1)^n - 2*((n+4)+(n+2)*(-1)^n)*i^(n*(n+1))+5)/32, where i=sqrt(-1). - Bruno Berselli, Mar 27 2012
