FORMULA

a(n)=(a(n-1)*a(n-3)+3*a(n-2)^2)/a(n-4). - Index corrected, Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Oct 26 2011

MAPLE

A174168 := proc(n)

        if n <=4 then

                op(n+1, [1, 2, 5, 17, 109]) ;

        else

                (procname(n-1)*procname(n-3)+3*procname(n-2)^2)/procname(n-4) ;

        end if;

end proc: # R. J. Mathar, Oct 26 2011
