COMMENTS

Conjecture: sequence consists of an infinite number of subsequences S(m,0) = A172241(n) = (1/18)[8^n-(-1)^n-9], m>0, S(m,n+1) = 4*S(m,n)+1. The first subsequences

  S(1,n) = A002450(n) = (4^n-1)/3 = = 0,1,5,21,85...,

  S(2,n) = A072197(n) = (10*4^n-1)/3 = 3,13,53,213...,

  S(3,n) = (85*4^n-1)/3 = 28,113,453...,

  S(4,n) = (682*4^n-1)/3 = 227,909,3637..., and generally,

  S(m,n) = [(3*A172241(m)+1)*4^n-1]/3.
