FORMULA

a(n) = A142693(n+2,1)/2.

From Johannes W. Meijer, Feb 20 2009: (Start)

a(n) = 4a(n-1) - 5a(n-2) + 2a(n-3) for n > 2 with a(0) = 1, a(1) = 5, a(2) = 15.

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

a(n) = Sum_{i=0..n} Sum_{j=0..n} 2^min(i,j) (Billault et al) (compare with A339771 that has max instead of min). - Bernard Schott, Dec 16 2020

a(n) = 2*A066524(n+1) - A339771(n). - Kevin Ryde, Dec 17 2020

E.g.f.: 6*exp(2*x) - exp(x)*(5 + 2*x). - Stefano Spezia, Dec 17 2020

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 6*2^3 - 2*3 - 5 = 37.

MAPLE
