COMMENTS

Natural bilateral extension (brackets mark index 0): ..., -41635, -2331, -134, -9, -1, [0], 1, 9, 134, 2331, 41635, ... This is (-A163200)-reversed followed by A163200, without repeating the 0. That is, a(-n) = -a(n). Thus a(n) is an odd function of n.

FORMULA

Let F(n) be the Fibonacci number A000045(n) and let L(n) be the Lucas number A000032(n).

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} F(2k-1)^3.

a(n) = (1/20)*(F(6*n) + 12*F(2*n)).

a(n) = (1/4)*(F(2n)^3 + 3*F(2n)). (K. Subba Rao)

a(n) = (1/20)*F(2n)*(L(4n) + 13).

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

a(n) - 21*a(n-1) + 56*a(n-2) - 21*a(n-3) + a(n-4) = 0.

G.f.: (x - 12*x^2 + x^3)/(1 - 21*x + 56*x^2 - 21*x^3 + x^4) = x*(1 - 12*x + x^2)/((1 - 3*x + x^2 )*(1 - 18*x + x^2)).
