COMMENTS

Apparently a(n) = A074323(n+1). a(n) = A072946(n-1) for n > 1.

Partial sums are in A164053.

Binomial transform is A135532 without initial term -1. Second binomial transform is A161938.

LINKS

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0, 2).

FORMULA

a(n) = (2^(1/4))^(3+2*n+(-1)^n) * (2-(-1)^n)/2.

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