FORMULA

a(n) = round((5*5^n + 4*n - 1)/32) = round((5*5^n + 4*n - 5)/32).

a(n) = floor((5*5^n + 4*n + 3)/32).

a(n) = ceiling((5*5^n + 4*n - 5)/32).

a(n) = a(n-2) + (3*5^(n-1) + 1)/4 , n > 1.

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 4*a(n-2) - 6*a(n-3) + 5*a(n-4), n > 3.

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

a(n) = (5^(n+1) + 4*n - 4*(-1)^n - 1)/32. - Bruno Berselli, Jan 12 2011

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 0 + 1 + 3 = 4.
