FORMULA

From Paul Barry, Nov 09 2009: (Start)

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

a(n) = -(-1)^n*(2*n^2+8*n+3-3*(-1)^n)/8. (End)

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 07 2016: (Start)

a(n) = -2*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-3) + a(n-4) for n>3.

a(n) = -(-1)^n*floor((n+1)*(n+3)/4).

a(2k) = - A005563(k), a(2k-1) = A002378(k) for k>0. (End)
