COMMENTS

Nonnegative walks with n steps on the x-axis starting at the origin using steps {1,0,-1} and visiting no point more than twice. Note: a 0 step counts as a visit and a step but does not contribute to the length of the walk. - David Scambler, May 22 2012

Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..2000 (first 500 terms from R. H. Hardin)

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2, 0, -1, 1, -1).

FORMULA

From David Scambler, May 22 2012: (Start)

G.f.: (1+x^3-x^4)/(1-2*x+x^3-x^4+x^5).

a(n) = 2^n for n<4; otherwise, a(n) = a(n-1)+a(n-2)+a(n-4)+1. (End)
