%N Third differences of the Jacobsthal sequence A001045.

%C Second differences of A078008. First differences of the sequence (-1)^(n+1)*A084247(n).

%F a(n) + a(n+1) = A000079(n), n > 1.

%F a(n+3) = 8*A001045(n) = 4*A078008(n+1) = 2*A097073(n+1).

%F From _R. J. Mathar_, Jan 23 2009: (Start)

%F a(n) = a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2).

%F G.f.: (3-5*x)/((1+x)*(1-2*x)). (End)

%F a(n) = (1/3)*(8*(-1)^n + 2^n), with n >= 0. - _Paolo P. Lava_, Mar 02 2009
