COMMENTS

The limiting ratio a(n+1)/a(n) is:2.1588924674387395

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..30.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*a(n - 1) + a(n - 2) - Floor[a(n - 2)/2] - Floor[a) n - 4]/2] - Floor[a(n - 5)/2].

MATHEMATICA

a[-3] = 0; a[-2] = 0; a[-1] = 0; a[0] = 1; a[1] = 1;

a[n_] := a[n] =

    2*a[n - 1] + a[n - 2] - Floor[a[n - 2]/2] - Floor[a[n - 4]/2] -

    Floor[a[n - 5]/2]

Table[a[n], {n, 0, 30}]
